This hike explores incredible sinkholes, stony rock gardens, and cedar glades while mixing in some history. You will first traverse a dense concentration of sinkholes scattered amid crazy rock gardens, then walk rich woods to find an Indian marker tree. Curve through formerly settled land to find an old rocked-in spring, important for early settlers, before returning to sinkhole-rich rolling terrain, where a few hills add vertical variation to the hike.
