BEST PLACE TO GET BACK TO NATURE
McDowell Nature Preserve
This Lake Wylie-area gem is the oldest preserve in Mecklenburg County with 1,115 acres of wooded wilderness. Picnic, camp, or hike along seven miles of trails. Flora and fauna fans have the chance to check out more than 100 species of birds, rare plant life, plus several species of mammals, amphibians and reptiles. And the Nature Preserve’s neighbor, Copperhead Island, offers fishing and boating access.
