Description

This is a very short segment of the Runge Nature Center, and is one of the only unpaved trails the nature center offers. This trail has a steep staircase about halfway through, so it may not be ADA accessible. Creeks and moss covered rocks can be seen from this segment.

Flora & Fauna

Squirrel, Cardinals, Deer, Turkey
