Trail shared by Peter Gitta

A wide path through woods and open prairie.

Description

This trail begins in a stand of maples, but shortly breaks into open prairie with tall grasses. After meandering through the open environment, the trail begins its return journey. Eventually, the journey ends back in the wooded canopy where it began. The flat terrain and small amount of mileage make this an easy trail for a quick nature fix.
