As part of its research on cavity nesters in the Carolina Piedmont, Hilton Pond Center established a Bluebird Trail in 1982. The trail begins with more than a dozen nestboxes erected at the Center itself. It extends in two main directions: east along Devinney Road and south on S.C. 324, and west along Devinney and south on U.S. 321. As of March 2001, 40 boxes were in place, with more being added on a regular basis.

In 2000, the Hilton Pond Center Bluebird Trail became affiliated with the Transcontinental Bluebird Trail, a multinational project sponsored by the North American Bluebird Society (NABS). Click here to view the Certificate of Recognition.
