This is an easy walk through montane forest and meadows to springs in a calcareous basin where you'll see plants which eat meat! Our very own meat-eating plant is called the Butterwort and a very attractive plant it is too. Many people think it’s a violet! In Scandinavia the leaves have been used as a rennet to curdle milk, hence the common name Butterwort. The trail turns left, crosses the right-of-way and skirts the basin in the trees (more orchids). In fall, this is one of the best places to spot some unusual migrating warblers. Arrive at a platform overlooking the springs and the interesting vegetation of the calcareous flat. From here, the trail climbs back into forest and meadow country.
