Watching the river bank in this area you will notice immediately a change in landscape. On the north side of the river, notice the bank extends upward, with the bank reaching heights nearly 100 feet above the river.

A slight change in river geography such as this high bluff creates the opportunity to view species that are not well adapted to the lower banks of the river but thrive high above the river. For example high bluffs provide good conditions for very large Red Maples and Red Oaks that cannot grow along the lower banks of the river.
