The Saluda Community Land Trust (SCLT) and the City of Saluda have partnered together to transform this once 18 acre dumpsite into a beautiful nature park.  The trails are rated as moderate to strenuous and run down into a valley, where you can walk along the creek or go to a small spring. The Summit Trail takes you to a cleared area with great views. 


WHERE: Saluda, NC
