Need to Know

Trail is accessed from the Blue, Red, or Orange trails.

Description

The current map at the Schiff Nature Preserve has this marked as "unmarked trail". There are actual purple blazes marking the trail. Be prepared for steep inclines. Poles will be handy here. The area is well marked but may pose a challenge when there is more foliage. The trail takes you to the top to the Preserve and the outdoor amphitheater.

Flora & Fauna

Many birds and signs of deer.
