Swift Creek Bluffs Nature Preserve

  • 7800 Holly Springs Rd.
    Raleigh, NC 27606

At 23 acres, urban escape comes in a small package at Swift Creek Bluffs. Hike to the top of the bluff and take advantage of the numerous benches that turn their back on civilization (literally: the Lochmere development is less than 100 feet away). Take in the passage of Swift Creek below and a lush hardwood canopy that puts a concealing roof on surrounding Cary.
Swift Creek Bluffs is the Joyce Kilmer of beech trees. Clinging to the 100-foot bluffs that rise abruptly from Swift Creek are massive beech dating back to the days of James Madison, “The Star-Spangled Banner” and the latest craze in transportation, canals.
