Pine Ridge Nature Trail

This is a short relatively flat trail developed for the purpose of wildlife observation. The trail winds through pine islands, over wetland, and along open water. Interpretive signs provide insight into the plant life along the trail. The trail can be used as a loop (Pine Ridge Nature Trail - 1.4 miles) or as a route from the Wigwams Access Area to the Visitor Center (Wigwam connector trail - .4 miles). A short section of the trail, starting from the Visitor Center, has been made accessible.
