“This trail highlights a rich beech and maple forest growing on top of a glacial moraine.”— Rafi Wilkinson
Please note that the Pinhook Bog Trail has restricted access. Information on the bog trail can be found on the Pinhook Bog Trail page.
The Upland Trail starts from the east end of the parking lot. The trail is lollipop shaped and easy to follow. The recommend route is to run the loop in a clockwise direction. The trail rolls though the glacial moraine with a packed dirt surface.
