From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Goshen Pass Natural Area Preserve is a Natural Area Preserve located in Rockbridge County, Virginia. The oldest such state-managed property in Virginia, it was first acquired in 1954 to help protect views of the gorge along the Maury River. The site contains stands of chestnut oak, pine-oak-heath woodland, rocky scrub communities, numerous rare plants, and a habitat for the Appalachian jewelwing, a locally-rare damselfly. The site was dedicated as a Preserve in 2001.
