Runner Notes

This trail is an easy, sunny loop around a large meadow.

Description

The Green Loop begins at the parking lot along with the Red Loop and the Yellow Loop. Follow the trails through the forest and out to the wide open meadow. The Green Loop joins the Red Loop and the Yellow Loop in different sections along the meadow. Follow the green arrows to stay on the trail. This meadow is particularly beautiful in the late fall when the grass is tall and dry.

Flora & Fauna

Deer, foxes, wild turkey, spring peepers, wood frogs, red tailed hawks, turkey vultures, and all sort of migratory birds make this nature preserve their home. The wide meadow is home to ground-nesting birds of all kinds.
