Jordan Lake Educational State Forest is one of the newest members of North Carolina's Educational State Forest system. At the Forest, visitors can listen to the wind in the trees or they can listen to the trees tell a story. The Forest is home to a wide variety of wildlife including birds of prey, deer, songbirds, flying squirrels and beavers. Picnic facilities are available, including a shelter to accommodate large groups. The 3/4-mile Talking Tree Trail features "talking trees," each with a recorded message about its history and surroundings.
