Cut-Off Creek Ravines Natural Area

This area contains two ravines that flow generally eastward from coastal plain uplands to the adjacent bottomlands along Cut-off Creek. The ravines are forested with a pine-oak forest at their heads and a mixed oak and beech forest nearer the mouths. The bottomland into which the creeks emerge is forested with willow oak and water oak on higher sites and overcup oak and cypress on lower sites. This 377-acre area, which lies within the Cut-off Creek Wildlife Management Area, is a valuable example of Coastal Plain transition to Mississippi Alluvial Plain.
