McCandless Woods Preserve is a 30 Acre Property directly adjacent to Southern Guilford High School and Southern Guilford Elementary School and is full of beautiful natural landscapes and wildlife.  This Preserve is host to an excellent trail network that incorporates stunning ridge lines, old Hardwoods, and ample stream traversing. The property provides unique outdoor education and recreation, all while helping directly preserve water quality in this part of the County.

An Official Grand Opening Ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Friday, April 28 to celebrate the vast recreation and education opportunities this Preserve now offers.  Parking can be found at Southern Guilford High School.
