A .94-mile interpretive trail which takes you through a lowland woodland community dominated by green ash and American elm; twists and turns through oak woodlands; and meanders through meadows. There are several wooden walk bridges that cross the Bjorn Creek. The trail contains several numbered posts and a corresponding trail guide describing geology, plant and wildlife in the area. Trail guides are available at the trailhead and Visitor Center. Keep a watchful eye for the long tailed, brown and gray, secretive black-billed cuckoo which is more often heard than seen. Listen for its “cu-cu-cu-cu-cu-cu-cu-cu”. The Eastern wood pewee is another woodland bird that would be overlooked if not for its persistent “pee-ah-wee” song.
