“A scenic trail through the woods and alongside Arabia Lake.”
— Kristen Arendt
This is one of the more popular trails in the park, and may be busy during peak hours.
This yellow-blazed trail is a great option for families or visitors who are new to the preserve. Starting from the Nature Center, the Forest Trail heads out under a forest canopy to the scenic Arabia Lake. The trail is well-marked and one of the more traveled trails in the park, so it will be easy to find your way. The trail will pass a junction with the Mile Rock Trail
on the left which you can take for a loop back to the nature center, or you can continue on to the trail’s end point at the Arabia Mountain Trail
