Trail shared by Eric Ashley

An enjoyable interpretive trail.

Features Birding · River/Creek

Family Friendly The Nature Trail, together with Sidekick, creates a short stroller-accessible loop that's easy-going for kids.

Description

This wide trail leads gently away from the East Trailhead. Hiking along this popular multi-use trail is easy, and the nearby marsh and forest views are quite pleasant. The wide bench was accomplished by impressive rock work, which is easier to see next to a wooden bench near the start of the trail.

The trail continues toward the intersection with Sidekick, just before a volunteer-built bridge, passing a few signs identifying the area's history and flora. On the other side of the seasonal stream, the trail rises to a picnic table where it meets the start of Cairn.

Flora & Fauna

Along with various trees and shrubs, hikers might see a variety of birds including several types of woodpeckers. In the warmer months, the bright blooms of skunk cabbage can be found in the marshy areas.
