Pioneer Springs - Chickasaw Bluff Combination Trail at Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This trail begins at the well-marked trailhead at Poplar Tree Lake and heads north along Chickasaw Bluff No. 3, hugging the edge of marshy bottomland that is rich in wildlife (including mosquitoes).
The trail passes the Pioneer Springs, connecting briefly with the Woodland Trail and the Bicycle Trail near the Woodland Shelter, and continues along the bluff paralleling Riddick Road. There you might see raccoons and beaver, in addition to the usual squirrels, frogs, and toads. The trail then turns in to end at the Piersol Lake access loop roads. You can also hike the reverse, from north to south, but the trailhead is harder to find at the north end."
