Need to Know
Restrooms are available at the Nature Center when it's open.
From the M waypoint, carefully choose your direction and check your map soon after to verify you're on the correct path. If you're coming from the Nature Center and want to see Totem Rock, continue "straight" at the intersection with M. The first half of this trail isn't nearly as interesting as the last half. Totem Rock is a large natural rock shelf that makes a great resting spot in any weather. Native Americans and early European settlers are believed to have used this area. After passing Totem Rock, the trail kicks upwards and becomes a bit more strenuous. There is a shortcut from Totem Rock to the ridge top where an access road will return you straight to the Nature Center. Totem Rock is approximately 1.5 miles from the Nature Center via the "Main Trail".
If you are continuing past Totem Rock to waypoint "A", the trail becomes more challenging. When you reach the grassy area, head slightly North/right and cross through the open area to find the "A" sign by a large metal gate.
The trail is narrow in many places and it channels water which makes it slow to dry out. Muddy and slippery spots are prevalent days after rainfall.
