Description

The Dunn's Farm Trail was one of the early trails built on Jennings State Forest. The trail name comes from one of the pioneer settlers of the area, William W. Dunn. Part of the current Dunn's Farm Trail and the Pioneer Trail cross Mr. Dunn's Land Grant that was issued to him on the 13th of June in 1884. The Dunn's Farm camp zone is located along the eastern side of the trail loop.

The trailhead can be found adjacent to our forest office headquarters. The trail is 3.6 miles in length with changes in elevation as you traverse along the edge of a ravine. It is considered a moderate hike. You can expect an average hike time of one to two hours to complete this trail.

The trail is marked with medium pink blazes. A portion of this trail is shared with the Pioneer Trail which is marked with medium blue blazes. The shared portion will be marked with both pink and blue blazes.

As with all the trails here at Jennings State Forest, pets are allowed as long as they are on a leash.

Flora & Fauna

Plants such as Bartram's ixia, purple honeycomb-head, tarflower, and several varieties of orchids can all be found on Jennings State Forest. The flowers of these unique plants make the forest alive with color throughout the spring, summer, and ealy fall.

Some commonly observed animals include the Sherman's fox squirrel, alligator, bobcat, deer and turkey.
Many birds can also be seen, especially during migrational periods.
