Detailed Trail Description

The Tulip Poplar Trail is named for the majestic Tulip trees that stand along its trail at the southern portion of its loop. This is the longest trail on the property and has several foot bridges and hills to engage. At the end of the trail it joins the service road which requires a lengthy uphill walk to return to the main area.

  • The Wetland Trail presents a gradual downhill walk as it follows the creek from the north to the south. It should be noted that the return trip will require a gradual uphill trek of equal distance.
  • Across the creek is a west facing embankment that provides unique attributes for plants and wildlife.
  • Walnut, cottonwood, and pawpaw trees are abundant during this walk.
  • Eventually the trail will join the service road at the edge of a maintained meadow.
  • To return to the main area, follow the service road to the right (uphill).
  • This will take you past the prairie, to the crest of the service road, and then descend back to the parking area.
