Once part of the original 30,000-acre Stagville Plantation, this 708-acre preserve now spans both sides of Jock Road and is part of the mosaic landscape in northern Durham County linking Lake Michie, Little River Reservoir, Falls Lake, the Flat River and the Little River watersheds. The property is adjacent to the 35,000-acre US Army Corps of Engineers Falls Lake Reservoir. The site has a rich agricultural and forestry history, as demonstrated by the neighboring Division of Cultural History’s Historic Stagville. Structures from the plantation’s time are still on the property, as are stone piles and other signs of its agricultural past. There are 2.7 miles of trails that wind through native prairie grasses and flowers, beside a creek and up a 500-foot elevation with good views.
