Clemmons Educational State Forest


Located in the transition zone between the piedmont and coastal plain, Clemmons offers a mix of pine stands and hardwood vegetation, and a pleasant rolling terrain highlighted by streams and rock outcroppings. These features are made accessible by a series of well marked trails, accented by exhibits and displays explaining the ecology of a managed forest The most fascinating feature by far, especially to children, is a selection of talking trees and rocks.
