The main part of the Dogwood Trail travels from Prairie Branch Campground to Prairie Branch Loop.

Description

This trail connects many of the main parts of the park on the prairie branch peninsula part of the park. As a result, where it begins is a little subjective, and one leg is mapped as a connector (see Dogwood - Nature Center Connector).

If you are in the Prairie Branch Campground, the trail heads south to the parking area near the shelters. From there, it heads northeast more-or-less along the park road. It forms a three-way intersection with itself after a bit less than half a mile—here you can continue on the Dogwood Trail (mapped as Dogwood - Nature Center Connector) north to the Nature Center, or turn left/west into a forest of tall pines.

The trail will meet another park road and an unmarked forest road, so keep an eye out for the light-blue blazes as the trail zigzags a bit. The trail ends on the Prairie Branch Loop, which you can use to get back to the Prairie Branch Campground where this description began to make a nice short loop.
