Description

The Savanna Ridge Trail is a 2.5-mile loop sharing 1 mile on the northeastern side with the Natural Tunnel Trail within the Bennett Spring State Park. Soon after turning southwest from the shared section, the trail intersects the white connector at the intersection of a small tributary creek. Continue to the right over some stepping stones to finish up the complete loop, or take the connector left for a shorter 1.5 mile option. Ticks, chiggers and trail crossing spider webs are abundant in the summer months.

Flora & Fauna

The wooded areas support abundant wildlife including deer, squirrels, chipmunks, many woodland birds and insects, including ticks. The open woodlands and glades are glorious with wildflowers during spring and fall.
