The Old Plantation Interpretive Trail is a 1.2 mile, easy hiking loop, that is accessible from the terrace gardens and provides access to the campground B trail and the Mossey Creek Trail. The trail winds through the woods, passing the remains of several structures that once made up William Townes’s Occoneechee Plantation. Along the trail, hikers will encounter the family cemetery. Behind the home was once an extensive, five-terraced garden. Although most of the original plants died long ago, the boxwoods that once lined the path have grown tall.
