This barrier-free interpretive trail has tree identification plaques that are Braille-encoded for the visually impaired. The leisurely pace of the hike allows time to linger at the Braille-encoded descriptive plaques and learn some fascinating facts about the many types of trees in the area. One species, the service tree, produces fruit that was used by Native Americans in bread making. Another, the white dogwood, was prized for the curative powers of its aromatic but bitter inner bark, said to be a remedy for malaria. Other trees have more modern purposes. The post oak is used to make railroad ties; the sour red juice from the fruit of the winged sumac can be substituted for pink lemonade. Berries from some of the shrubs, such as the hawthorn and the huckleberry, make very good jams and jellies.
