Paradise Springs Nature Trail in Eagle
A half-mile, handicap-accessible paved trail leads past a trout stream and an old mill pond to an historic spring house. The pond is lovely and ice-free in the winter, but the spring and spring house are its most remarkable features. The spring is about 5 feet deep within the house and maintains a temperature of about 47°F year-round. Over 30,000 gallons of water flow out of it each hour—or 500 gallons per minute.
The parking lot at Paradise Springs Nature Trail also provides access to Gotten Cabin, a restored 1850s log cabin that was home to a Prussian immigrant. Also adjacent to the Scuppernong River Habitat Area, the largest wet prairie east of the Mississippi River, which offers many additional opportunities for recreation.
The parking lot at Paradise Springs is a fee area: A state park vehicle sticker is required.
