Fernbank Forest Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Nestled in the valley of Peavine Creek and along wooded upland slopes, sixty-five-acre Fernbank Forest is a true rarity, a vestige of old-growth, virgin forest only a few miles from the heart of a major city.

Families come to meander along paved trails beneath 200-year-old hardwoods, pause at overlooks and beside ponds, and reconnect with the natural world. Also on the grounds, the Fernbank Science Center offers exhibit halls, classrooms, a library, a world-class planetarium, an astronomical observatory (open Thursday and Friday evenings), and an aerospace education laboratory."
