On the grounds of the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is the Persimmon Trail. Seek this out as it is a lovely, easy to walk trail, and a perfect end to your visit. On the trail you will find folks walking, jogging, riding their bikes, and lovers holding hands. It is also attached to the Carolina Thread Trail which is a 300 mile long network of greenery, blueways, and trails in 15 counties, 2 states, reaching 2.9 million people according to Auntie Google. .
Throughout the trail are signs naming the trees and other vegetation. Nice touch and a good learning tool for children.
The path has many twists and turns. Place small colored items at these junctures to ensure you find your way back to the parking lot. And of course pick them up upon return.
What a nice surprise at the end of my hike..
