The Knight Brown Nature Preserve, located in southwestern Rockingham County near Carolina Marina, is Piedmont Land Conservancy's first preserve open to the public. This beautiful property will offer visitors a peaceful opportunity to enjoy the quiet beauty of nature.

With almost three miles of walking trails, the Knight Brown Nature Preserve showcases a wooded valley, two gently rippling streams, many different types of ferns, spring wildflowers and the rare eastern leatherwood shrub. The Preserve has an informational kiosk at the trail head, handmade benches at various places, two bridges and picnic tables.

The two large streams on the property feed into Belews Creek just before it flows into the Dan River. There is at least one vernal pool that is prime breeding habitat for spotted salamanders and other amphibians.

The Knight Brown Nature Preserve is part of the Rockingham County Pathways Plan, a county-wide trails plan adopted in 2013 by the Rockingham County Commissioners.

The Preserve is open to the public from sunrise to sunset.
