Blue Ridge Parkway tract protected

A 523-acre tract on Humpback Mountain, protecting views from the Blue Ridge Parkway in Avery and McDowell counties, has been purchased by the Conservation Trust for North Carolina.

The tract, which includes tributaries of the North Toe River and the North Fork Catawba River, lies between the parkway’s mileposts 319 and 323. It will be deeded to the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission for public use.

It was the Conservation Trust’s 50th protected property along the parkway, for a total of 3,1309 acres preserved. Money from Salisbury philanthropists Fred and Alice Stanback, the state Clean Water Management Trust Fund and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation paid for the purchase.
