The Coordinates above will put you in the parking lot of the Piedmont Environmental Center. The Mapscape is set in an Amphitheater right next to the parking area. This is really a neat map of North Carolina.

Enjoy the area, and visit the Center if you have any questions about trails, Mapscape, or what ever. They have full time Naturalists on their staff who are more than willing to answer any questions you may have.
