Description

"There and back" on both the Main Trail and the Rockside Side Trail, about 3.8 km, with some hills and rugged sections. Hiking poles can be a great help. The pace will be slow at times with numerous stops to observe the spring ephemerals, listen to bird song and take photos. Bring your binoculars, camera and cellphone. Apps like Merlin, Seek, and iNaturalist will help identify flora and fauna along the route.
