From The Gaston Gazette:
My words of advice for enjoying a visit to the Seven Oaks Preserve in southeastern Gaston County?
First, you’ll need to slow down as you drive south down New Hope Road toward the trailhead or you’ll fly right by the unmarked parking area.
Second, and more importantly, slow down as you walk the trail. The lake, the forests, the wildlife are all best enjoyed at a leisurely pace.
