This half-mile, fully accessible loop follows a wide, level crushed stone path, enhanced with bridges, boardwalks, and an observation deck.
There is a guide rope on the left, occasionally replaced by a hand rail, for the entire length of the trail. There is also an audio tour available.
All narrated stops along the trail are marked by a round bead in the guide rope. Within reach of the bead, there will be a signpost with the stop name and number in print and Braille. A square bead in the rope indicates that there is a bench or other seating nearby.
On this trail, you can listen for scarlet tanagers and ovenbirds, wood frogs and bull frogs; visit various wetland and woodland habitats; explore a puddingstone outcrop; and learn about the natural and cultural history of this special place.
