I am planning on doing the cabin side not the wetter mine side due to wet conditions...
-Terrain: jagged rocks throughout, stream crossings, hills and valleys, mainly shaded, a couple flat parts. Will be muddy in a couple areas so wear appropriate shoes for this hike.
Soldiers Delight Natural Environment Area (NEA) is comprised of 1,900 acres of serpentine barren. The area has over 39 rare, threatened, or endangered plant species as well as rare insects, rocks and minerals. Rare grassland plant species are threatened by invasion of Virginia Pines. Currently, a five year effort of removing 1,000 acres of pines and prescribed burning are underway to return the area to natural serpentine habitat.
