Description

This trail loops through a restored grassland area. It is mostly a mowed, easy path.

Flora & Fauna

This area is being restored to grassland with prescribed fire. This sets back the cedars and kills the honeysuckle that chokes other many other areas in the park. Shrubland birds like Indigo Buntings, Yellow Breasted Chats and Eastern Towhees.

This is actually the High Ridge Trail, you use the same parkinglot as the Gans Creek 8 mile loop, but this is a 1.5-1.75 mostly grassland with some timber hike. FYI. mostateparks.com/sites/most… Dec 30, 2016
