Trail shared by Hunter R

A short loop exhibiting the active reclamation of farmland by hardwood forests.

Description

The Island Loop Trail is a short, relaxing trail through what was once cultivated as farmlands. Since farmers moved away from the area, and the national park has prevented development, the area is currently being reclaimed by the forests from which it was originally cleared.
