When it comes to variety in terrain, this property is full of diverse natural features that make it a beautiful setting to enjoy as a peaceful getaway. This tract is in a conservation easement and will be preserved to keep the legacy intact for generations. The Bogan Mountain range is known for its scenic areas and abundance of wildlife. A network of UTV trails/roads lead you across the ridges and down into the valleys. The panoramic views are simply amazing, and vistas seem to open up from the crests of the ridges. The tops and slopes are covered primarily in mature hardwoods, with a high percentage of chestnut and white oaks. The midstory is covered in dogwoods, sparkleberry, and laurels, to name a few of the native plants that grow above mountain streams. Some small patches of timber were harvested 8-10 years ago, and those areas create excellent variety in habitat for the wildlife. The deer and turkey populations on the mountain are excellent, with mature bucks and plenty of gobblers. It is common to hear 10 plus different gobblers from a ridgetop on a calm spring morning. A handful of food plots are in place that enhance the hunting opportunities. One very cool and unique feature is a mountain top pool known as “Baker’s Pond,” a natural spring that has been flowing for decades near the highest point of the property.
Two building envelopes are designated for cabin/homesites. One is near the pond overlooking the vast Chattooga valley, with awe-inspiring views. The second site is near the river on a pine-covered hill. The river highlights the tract and is a place of tranquility. The Chattooga is known for outstanding fishing for bass, catfish, crappie and stripe bass in the summer. The canoeing and kayaking are a lot of family fun as well. Several access points along the river would make for ideal campsites and just a place to spend a lazy summer day. The timber in the lower portion of the tract, down in the gently rolling area, is primarily mature pines ready for a second thinning. This property is one to be proud to own, and it is prepared for its next land steward and explorers, hunters, trail riders and nature lovers’ dream. If you are intrigued, please reach out and we can explain the conservation easement and give you more details about this wonderful piece of ground.
