The Tryon River Trail loops approximately 2 kms and links the various historic sites and interprets the natural features of the area including meadows, small woods, fresh-water bog, and salt marshes. Native plants, shrubs and trees are labeled with QR codes that link you with sites which give additional information. The area is good for bird watching and the trail is a great place for geocaching. The trail can be accessed at #37 Route 10, at Tryon. You can also visit Lord’s Pond Memorial Park approximately 1km North of here at North Tryon.
