Explore the Headwaters
Our Maya Mountain Watershed Station is tucked away on ten acres of private property within the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve about half a mile downstream from Blancaneaux Lodge. The station deck overlooks Privassion Creek , part of the headwaters of the Macal River. The creek is a 5 minute walk downhill from the station. Another 20 minutes downstream on the trail that runs parrallel takes you to a favorite swimming spot at Big Rock Falls.
