Polk Middle hikers visit Vaughn Creek Greenway

The Nature Navigators, Polk Count Middle School’s hiking club, recently hiked the Vaughn Creek Greenway in Tryon.

Eli Smith, Polk County’s Trails Coordinator and Americorp Volunteer, provided information on a possible Native American tree trail marker and the 1943 railroad bridge constructed to cross the creek

Students saw both artifacts and noticed the nice benches and the picnic area.
