The public lands surrounding the Blue Ridge Parkway have grown. The Conservation Trust for North Carolina recently sold 110 acres to the National Park Service near the southern end of the Parkway in Haywood, County North Carolina. The tract, known as the Richland Creek Headwaters, is near milepost 440, lies between Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests, and will help provide a buffer of public land in this corner of Western North Carolina. The Pinnacle Ridge Significant Natural Area also lies inside the parcel.
