Powell Creek Preserve is a prime recreational tract loaded with mature timber located in Taliaferro and Hancock Counties in Georgia.
Powell Creek Preserve is located in the Upper Ogeechee River sub-basin, characterized by rolling hills and intermittent streams. The property is bisected by Marshall Stewart Road, which turns into Old Crawfordsville Road as it runs east into State Hwy 22.
Located eight miles south of Interstate 20, the property is easily accessible from Atlanta and Augusta. Sparta is the closest town heading south and Crawfordville to the north.
From Sparta heading north and Crawfordville heading south, both on State Hwy 22, turn to the west on county maintained dirt road, Old Crawfordville Hwy. After crossing the bridge over Powell Creek, the road name changes to Marshall Stewart Road SW. After approximately one mile, the property is on the north and south sides of the road.
Internal roads traverse the property and provide access to all the existing feed patches; however, the area south of Powell Creek is currently accessible only by foot.
Powell Creek Preserve is well suited for a country get-a-way with the wonderful water resource of its namesake, Powell Creek, flowing west to east through the southern portion of the tract.
In addition, several other creeks flow throughout the property creating areas for potential pond sites. The rolling hills and hardwood bottoms are pleasing to the senses and provide a diversity of habitat.
The area has a strong white-tailed deer and turkey population as well as the usual small game species. Several well-placed feed patches already exist, with opportunities for additional ones to be established.
F&W Forestry Services inventoried the timber on Powell Creek Preserve in March of 2021. Included in the Property Report are the estimated timber volumes by product class resulting from that inventory. All the timber on the property is natural and is composed of various species and age classes.
