Two connecting loop trails meander through a variety of wildlife habitats. The main trail’s surface is black shale; side trails are dirt. Ribbons are tied around some of the trees that line the path, and sandstone markers with etchings name the various plants and trees along the way. Species include bur oak, black cherry, willow oak, eastern red cedar, southern red oak, sweet gum, red gum, and the resurrection fern. The resurrection fern curls up in dry weather and appears dead but will become green again with the return of moisture, hence its name.
