Need to Know

Plenty of post run merriment available in town!

Description

This trail winds above the banks of Yellow Springs Creek and crosses several springs. Along the path you can grab some spring water (not treated, drink at your own risk) enjoy the deep woods, and lose track of the fact that you are less than 1,000 yards from civilization.

Flora & Fauna

Mixed hardwood, cedars, pines, woodpecker, nuthatch, squirrels, several wildflower species (way more than I can ID).
