This easy hike leads you through a forest where you will see a beaker hazelnut, a grandfather beech, sour gum trees, aspens, sassafras, and a white oak, without ever leaving the trail. In other words, somebody laid out this trail, the first loop, with a purpose. The second loop, starting with a stop at the old-time springhouse, leads you past a stand of white pine, then red pine, as you take the trail alongside the Churchville Reservoir. Is it possible to learn about the natural world while you’re hiking? Here at the Churchville Nature Center, the answer is yes. Their mission is to instill an awareness and appreciation of the natural world in all people through education and to encourage responsible environmental stewardship with a commitment to the preservation of resources and wildlife habitat.
