Located in the Blue Ridge Ranger District, this 175-acre tract of large, cove hardwood timber is set aside as a memorial to Arthur Woody who served as Ranger from 1918 to 1945. Ranger Woody, the "barefoot ranger" loved this peaceful cove and negotiated its purchase by the Forest Service. A variety of beautiful wildflowers abound in the area, and the large Yellow Poplars are said to be the best-second-growth stand of the species in the nation. White-tailed deer, black bears, and ruffed grouse also might be seen. Hiking.
