Description [Suggest Changes]

The trail begins at the visitors center to Crow's Nest Preserve. Visitors can follow the yellow arrows along the trail through the woods and meadows. Hikers will pass over a small stream on a bridge made of white oak decking. A glance to the left and you'll be looking into the forest, and a glance to the right gives you a peek into the meadows. A portion of the trail runs by French Creek before turning into an open meadow.
