Award: Place to Roam With the Butterflies in 2017
Year Won: 2017
Pick: Editor's Pick

RibbonWalk Nature Preserve is a compact wedge of natural mixed-wood Piedmont forest, ponds, and walking trails in the oft-overlooked Nevin community four miles north of uptown. On weekdays and sometimes even weekends, you can roam the three miles of trails—and one of the region’s oldest groves of American beech trees, with some specimens more than a century old—and view some of the preserve’s 53 bird and 24 butterfly species, but otherwise not see a soul.
