At an elevation of 2,930 feet, Fred Clifton Park provides breathtaking views of the northern Blue Ridge from multiple overlook points. Take your lunch to one of the many secluded and shaded picnic tables scattered through the hardwood trees.
Great for observing wildlife, this area holds red-eyed vireo, wood thrush, northern cardinal and American goldfinch and in May and September, can support a high diversity of migrant cuckoos, thrushes, vireos, warblers, tanagers and grosbeaks. Butterflies can be found cruising through the picnic area at any time of day, with spicebush swallowtail being especially prevalent. Black bears have been known to make an appearance every now and then as well. Be sure to secure your vehicle and any food you may have during your visit.
Lovers Leap Scenic Overlook is located adjacent to the park.
