The Carl Alwin Schenck Memorial Forest is a 245 acre forest located in western Wake County about 10 minutes from the NC State campus. It is managed by N.C. State as a teaching and research forest to demonstrate the multiple benefits generated by an actively-managed forest. Visitors can walk the well-maintained trails to enjoy bird-watching and wildlife, see a managed forest that shows successional stages and enjoy the well-maintained picnic facilities. The Frances L. Liles Trail is most frequently used by the public. This trail passes through a number of sites where a variety of management practices are being employed, including those to support different wildlife habitats and encourage specific plants and animals.
