Description

Visitors will enjoy making their way through a mature forest along this trail that leads to Stony Brook.

Along the way, plenty of hickories, sycamores, and oaks can be admired, but the real star is the “Hobbit Tree,” an iconic beech positioned along the way.

Direct access to Stony Brook can be had from this trail, and kingfishers and ducks can be admired in addition to the other bird life that calls the brook home.
