North of Saluda
6.5 miles round trip
The Green River Game Lands contain a network of 9 different trails, including the 6.5 mile out-and-back Green River Cove Trail. The trek follows the beautiful Green River for its entire length, so you can enjoy this rushing, wild river as well as views of nearby mountains. The Game Lands are also home to a diverse array of rare plant and animal species, as well as one of the highest densities of nesting birds in North Carolina.
The Green River Game Lands keep getting better, with new conservation lands added by Conserving Carolina. Among these, we added 600 acres at Little White Oak Mountain in 2018 and we hope to add another 78 recently protected acres on Macedonia Road to the Game Lands.
