Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Immediately after exiting from the rear (lower level) of the nature center, turn left on red-blazed Forest Loop Trail and pass Quarry Pond on the right. Submerged logs are sometimes crowded with basking painted turtles. In late fall they retreat to the pond bottom, surviving in an amazing state of suspended animation. Continue past the pond, past a yellow-blazed trail that circles it, and past a red-blazed junction, also on the right."

"You barely have to do more than step foot into the nature center building to make this a worthy outing. In fact, you may have a hard time convincing the kids to step foot outside once they get a look at the exciting exhibits inside. From the two-story giant red maple filled with wildlife of the Woodland Exhibit to the live crayfish, frogs, and turtles of the Wetland Exhibit and the butterflies and insects of the Meadow Exhibit, there is plenty to keep you and the kids enthralled and busy. After taking it all in, remind the kids that this is just a reflection of what they’ll experience on the trails in the 250-acre sanctuary. Exit the lower level doors of the nature center by the sign directing you to the trails." Read more
