Harbison State Forest is the largest urban green space in the Southeast. Friends of Harbison State Forest is a non-profit organization founded to preserve and promote the recreational and educational aspects of this urban forest resource. Our initial emphasis is planning, designing and building sustainable new trails while maintaining and upgrading the current trail system.

The Midlands Mountain Grant Project is complete.
We hope you had a chance to enjoy the new section
