Description

This is one of many well-marked dirt trails that make up the Forest Park Nature Center. Starting from the Valley Trail, this trail continues through dense silver maple and oak forest to cross a parking lot and continue on the other side. Along the northern portion of the trail, the grades continue to stay gentle as you meander through comparable forests to reach a junction with Deer Run Trail.

Flora & Fauna

Keep your eyes peeled for deer, wild turkeys, raccoons, and possums along the trail.
