A .77-mile interpretive trail that branches off the Little Twig Trail and ends just west of the Group Picnic Shelter. It winds its way under a canopy of bur oak, green ash, quaking aspen and ironwood. Portions of the trail take you through mixed grass prairie. The trail contains several numbered posts and a corresponding trail guide describing trees and shrubs of the area. Trail guides are available at the trailhead and Visitor Center. This trail is a good place to observe Cooper’s hawks, wild turkeys, scarlet tanagers and indigo buntings. There is one steep climb on this trail.
