Situated in the valley of Oil Camp Creek, just below Jones Gap State Park and East of the Ashmore Heritage Preserve, Green Mountain is a 139-acre forested gem recently acquired by Naturaland Trust. Boasting an incredible mix of hardwoods, spring ephemerals, wildlife, and a bustling trout stream, Green Mountain adds to the matrix of protected lands that strengthen the Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area. With funding from the South Carolina Conservation Bank, Graham Foundation, Hollingsworth Funds, John I Smith Charities, and the Symmes Foundation, we closed on the property and have opened it to the public.  Access is through a small strip of land with a gate off Oil Camp Creek Road where visitors can enter and cross the creek to enjoy Green Mountain. 

If you can't make it on foot, then enjoy a virtual tour of the property through our video and photos below made by Mac Stone

Driving Directions: On River Falls Rd, turn left onto Oil Camp Creek Rd, follow the road until seeing a metal gate on the left surrounded by trees. This entrance is lightly used, so prepare to walk through vegetation until reaching the creek. Cross the creek on foot (no bridge) and you're in Green Mountain. Enjoy!
