Davidson Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve

DAVIDSON-ARABIA MOUNTAIN NATURE PRESERVE 

                                  

 

This 2200 acre nature preserve is adorned with features like Arabia Mountain, Arabia Lake, South River, wetlands, rock outcrops, temperature forests, and fields that can be enjoyed year-round. Arabia's unique ecology provides habitat for some equally unique wildlife species! The preserve is also home to many unique plants, including federally protected species. We encourage you to enjoy the nature preserve; take your memories with you, but please leave all things natural behind for others to enjoy.

The PATH is Arabia’s most popular source of recreation. It is very popular with cyclist, hikers and casual walkers. An easy one mile hike will lead you to Arabia Lake which is open to the public for fishing. Arabia's natural, cultural, historical and recreational resources offer amazing opportunities for environmental education. Nature studies in botany, biology, ecology, geology and conservation are provided by a dedicated staff.
