The 803-acre Joseph E. Ibberson Conservation Area is dominated by large hardwood trees and straddles Peters Mountain. This large block of nearly unbroken forest is a haven for wildlife like forest warblers and other deep woods animals. The main attraction to the conservation area is the elaborate trail system that connects to the Appalachian Trail on the northern slope of Peters Mountain.
