The property comprises three distinct parcels, including approximately three miles of frontage on the Potomac River’s North Branch, three brook trout streams, 1,700 acres of mixed forest, and unique rocky bluffs rising 900 feet above the Potomac River. All three parcels include areas of rugged, mountainous terrain with numerous ephemeral streams, meadows, small tributaries, and wetlands.

Historically, all of the parcels were mined for coal, and evidence of the former mining activity is evident in the bench-cut terrain that characterizes various parts of each tract, providing a variety of challenging trails for hiking or riding. Recreational opportunities now include Off-Roa​d-Vehicle (ORV) riding, hiking and biking trails in the Huckleberry Rocks, North Hill and Potomac River areas​​.
