Wander Through 22 Acres Of Rock Formations At Big Rock Nature Preserve In North Carolina
When it comes to great big, giant things, it’s not just kids that are awestruck by them. Adults, too, are fascinated by larger-than-life objects. Case in point here in our own backyard: the Big Rock Nature Preserve in Charlotte, North Carolina.
McAlpine Creek Tributary #1 flows right through the preserve and provides a natural buffer from I-485. This park is historically significant in that evidence gathered here points to a Native American habitat that dates back 7,000 years.
