Gentle, rolling inclines are the stone-packed remains of rivers that once ran under, in, and over glaciers.

Overview

The gentle, rolling inclines along this run are the stone-packed remains of rivers that once ran under, in, and over glaciers. Depending on the season, you may see full pools with masses of jelly-like eggs clinging to branches or dwindling pools with frog and salamander tadpoles racing to metamorphose.

Description

Head out on this short and scenic loop in a clockwise direction from the Nature Center parking area. Check out The Boulders at the northeast corner of the loop before returning along the eastern border, parallel to Upland Road.
