Hickory Hollow NAP

Hickory Hollow Natural Area Preserve is 254 acres of woodland trails, ravines, and swampy marshland situated immediately behind Lancaster High School off the Regina Road. In 1971, county forester Henry Bashore created a system of trails through the preserve, making it accessible to anyone seeking a pleasant hike or picnic.

In 2000, the Northern Neck Audubon Society was able to buy this property and set it aside permanently for the enjoyment of the citizens of and visitors to the Northern Neck. NNAS applied to the Virginia Land Conservation Foundation for a matching grant to buy the property from the county, and then launched a fundraising campaign for the matching funds.
