Description

The Twin Oaks Interim Trail is a dirt road that begins from the southeast corner of the Group 63 Interim Trail and forms a long loop to the east.

This multi-use trail provides numerous views of the restored prairie, a creek crossing on its eastern side, and access to the Turtle Pond Trail on its southern side (a great spot for a snack or lunch).

This trail can be accessed most easily from the Hoff Road Trailhead.
