Description

This trail loops through a restored grassland area. It is mostly a mowed, easy path.

Flora & Fauna

This area is being restored to grassland with prescribed fire. This sets back the cedars and kills the honeysuckle that chokes other many other areas in the park. Shrubland birds like Indigo Buntings, Yellow Breasted Chats and Eastern Towhees.
