A portion of this area, which is managed for wildlife by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF), contains an exceptional diversity of valuable native plants. A population here of Trillium grandiflorum, large-flowered white trillium, is the most outstanding in Virginia. The state endangered Trillium cernum, nodding trillium, is also found here.

Requires a Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries Wildlife permit. See the DGIF website for more information.
