An excellent location for an easy stroll with access to parking, the Greenwald Information Kiosk, and the main property.

RIDGELINE TRAIL

INDIGO TRAIL

A short trail 0.2  mile that can be added onto your adventures on the Ridgeline Trail. This short walk has a wide variety of plants from pine trees to prairie plants.
