142 acres of undeveloped forested land with rock outcrops and mountainous topography. It is intended to be used for environmental education, forest preservation, and trail purposes.

The public is welcome to explore the property on new trails recently constructed through a joint community effort. 

More volunteer work will continue to develop new trails on the property, particularly a stream-side trail along Reservoir Road that will allow user to access both Heyward Community Forest and Ragged Mountain without having to walk, jog or bike along upper Reservoir Road.

To visit the property, follow these directions to Heyward Community Forest and park in the lower parking lot.
