How can this nature preserve be so close to the shops and dining of Downtown Valdese?
That will be your first question when you spot the great blue heron whose habitat is in the cove. Travelling over a mile along Lake Rhodhiss and McGalliard Creek (soon to be five miles), you will spot wildlife, flora, rock formations, water views and so much more. Once your escapade is complete and your soul rejuvenated, take the seven minute drive back to Main Street for refreshments!
