Directions to Property
From Highway 11 and US 178 north of Pickens at Holly Springs Store go west (away from Greenville toward Oconee County) on Highway 11 for 4. 7 miles. Turn left (south) on Eastatoee Creek Road (note: do not turn at the first Eastatoee Creek Road at 2. 7 miles). After the turn on Eastatoee Creek Road you will see Antioch Baptist Church on the right. Go past the church for .5 mile to the E. Preston McDaniel Road intersection. There is a parking area on the left before the bridge for the west entrance to the preserve.
Across the bridge there is an old railroad bed trail that is a perfect foot path to look at spring wildflowers. The trail is less than .25 mile but is the highlight area for flowers. The preserve continues on the right side (south) of E. Preston McDaniel Road for 1.9 miles. At the very east end of the preserve E. Preston McDaniel Road intersects with Nine Times Road. There is a parking area on the right side of the road. You can park here and go up the logging road past the gate for a hike that is moderate to difficult.
