Rocky River Blueway

Rocky-River-volunteers_010-(2)On this stretch of the Rocky River Blueway, experience a Piedmont floodplain forest habitat. Over 50 species of birds call this area home including some imperiled species.

Paddlers may also hear the calls of the Cope’s gray tree frogs, cricket frogs, spring peepers and upland chorus frogs or see over 10 species of butterflies like the Carolina satyr. The shoreline is trimmed with numerous floodplain trees, including bitternut hickory, cottonwood, swamp chestnut oak and black walnut.
