New sign for Lazy Girl Loop trail


A new sign marks a 9-acre tract in Saluda that has been preserved from development by combining funds from the Polk County’s Community Foundation’s Bradley Fund and the sale of one adjoining acre on which a small home with some conservation restrictions may be built. The Bradley Nature Preserve has in its midst the historic Lazy Girl basin, which is surrounded by the Lazy Girl Loop, a 2-mile loop trail that provides an easy way for people in the town of Saluda to take a walk in the woods. The trail was made and is maintained by the Saluda Community Land Trust. The entrance to the trail is located off Esseola Street near Autumn Care Nursing facility. (photo by Carolyn Ashburn)
