April showers bring May flowers, so join CEED Wildlife Biologist, Ranger Eric Powers, for an interpretive walk in search of those flowers and other signs of spring! Bud burst, bird migration, and insect emergence are some of the many clues for which we will be looking.
“I enjoy taking a slow easy walk through the woods as I look for tracks and listen for bird calls. I feel that animals often get a little closer when we are appreciating the beauty in nature.” – Ranger Eric
Please dress for the weather (layers), bring water and sturdy footwear. Bring binoculars if you have them, and your sense of adventure!
This is an advanced hiking trail with many steep climbs and descents along a variety of mixed terrain with an elevation gain of nearly 300 feet. There will be two opportunities to cut your hike short and head back to the parking lot if you feel you or your party cannot finish the entire loop. The signs will show you the way out.
Ticks are active in the woods all year long when temperatures are above freezing. To avoid ticks, please stay on the trail.
