“Interactive botanical trail with educational signs along the way.”— Jeff Stallman
Parking is free on weekdays and $3 on weekends. Restrooms at the main park.
This portion of the trail turns into a short wide singletrack dirt trail which ends at an interactive sundial. The sundial has a person stand in the center with hands together over their head to show what time it is; accurate times confirmed against a cell phone clock.
The remainder of the trail is a well defined dirt singletrack and far less maintained; trail adjacent plants can be overgrown. There are more informational signs along this portion of the trail. The trails discuss the area history and fauna.
