Peachtree Rock (S.C.) Stop 4 - Hardwood Forest, And Waterfall - Episode 6


Hardwood Forest - On lower ground, where there is much more moisture, Red Maple, Maple Leaf Viburnum, Mountain Laurel, and White Oak trees grow very well in areas like this.

Rudy and Jim come across an unusual feature in a sandhill area: a waterfall. They discuss how a waterfall ended up in such an unlikely place. A sheltered portion of the waterfall is a perfect place for Mud Dauber wasps to build their nests.

A coquina rock containing fossilized seashells is further proof that the Peachtree Rock area was once under water.
