A note on finding us:
Blackare’s entrance is located on Tucker Station road, just after the intersection with Versatile Road and across the street from a large housing development. A long gravel road leads to parking, our homestead, and the nature preserve trails. Please drive slowly: speed in excess of 15 mph destroys the road and may result in wildlife injury.
