Before starting your hike, stop in at the Tenafly Nature Center to learn about the animals, birds, and insects of the adjoining woods. A naturalist is usually available to answer questions, and should you need additional information after the hike, you can return to browse through the library’s collection of nature books. The forest understory is aglow with wildflowers each spring, and there’s an excellent possibility of spotting eastern painted turtles or wood ducks. On a sunny day be sure to scan Pfisters Pond for the northern ring-necked snake and the northern brown snake basking in the sun. Waterproof, sturdy shoes are recommended to protect feet against rocky and swampy areas. Food isn’t allowed on the trail, but there is a picnic table adjacent to the parking area.
