Description

This is a natural history trail. The interpretive signs identify various indigenous plants, animals, geological formations and human history associated with the area. The Native Americans used this location for winter camps and the settlers in the surrounding area were dependent on the water that flowed from the spring. Wildlife is attracted to the area in late summer and early autumn when water is scarce. Because of the diversity of native plants, the fall colors in the area around the springs are spectacular, and attract many visitors.
