Located in the heart of the historic Cherokee Indian country of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the Toxaway Creek tract offers a rare level of wooded seclusion that becomes quickly apparent after rounding the first bend in the road just a few hundred yards past the entrance gate. This high side of the property (1,100) presents several beckoning forks in the road that access different areas within the boundary lines. Each of these roads, which are all interconnected and run for miles throughout the interior of the 495+/- acres, wind through mature loblolly pine and hardwood stands past a series of fields, ridges, saddles, and ravines and eventually filter down to a very concealed one mile section of Toxaway Creek. In addition to holding brown trout, small mouth bass, and sunfish this stretch of the creek serves as a major corridor for whitetails, eastern turkeys, black bears, and wild boar. Overlooking one of the creek crossings is a large, natural cave that is nothing short of awe-inspiring. This incredible rock formation is rumored to be an old Confederate Soldier hideout and seeing it in person summons a genuine feeling of unique historical significance shrouded in the mystery of centuries of stories untold.
The main road continues past the cave, paralleling the creek before turning north and following a small feeder creek to a higher elevation and eventually reaching the northern boundary line. This north line borders the 85,000 acre Andrew Pickens Ranger District of the Sumter National Forest for well over a mile. The majority of the 495+/- acres is mature hardwoods that can be best described as dense and wild with draws that seem never ending and full of wildlife. Several smaller stands of mature loblolly pine are scattered throughout the property offering some nice diversity to the timber as well as ten potential food plot locations consisting of approximately 7 acres of fields and clearings. Two acres of these fields are located near the entrance and offer tremendous mountain peak views of the adjacent national forest.
Located approximately one hour away from both Atlanta, GA and Greenville, SC.
