The Earl H. Barnhart "Buzzard's Roost" Nature Preserve conserves nearly 1200 acres of the most rugged and scenic country in this area. Over 5 miles of forested trail meander past ponds, vernal pools, the crumbling remains of old homesteads, and deep, wooded ravines. A walk on the South Point Lookout Trail offers magnificent views of the vertical cliffs of sandstone and shale that descend into the beautiful Paint Creek Gorge.
