Welcome to Holmes Educational State Forest, a unique outdoors experience!

Holmes is located in the Blue Ridge Mountains. With rugged terrain, numerous rock outcroppings, and scenic vistas, it also offers a rich mixture of mountain hardwoods, rhododendron, flame azaleas, and a variety of wildflowers.

These features are accessible by a series of well-marked trails which are accented by exhibits and displays depicting the ecology of the managed forest.
