Raphine in Rockbridge County, Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
The Marl Creek Interpretive Trail
At McCormick Farm
The change from grain farming to pasture is only one of many changes in land management in the last century and a half. This trail is designed to show you how farming practices have changed, especially along our streams and waterways. We now manage our farm fields for long-term environmental health an agricultural productivity, while we have set aside the sensitive riparian area for water quality protection and as a wildlife corridor. Travel quietly, and you may see migratory birds, or other native wildlife in their habitat. Please stay on the trail.
