Description

From the parking lot, the trail heads towards the road and passes through a tunnel. Staying left the trail takes wooden stairs that head up along the Sandstone Bluffs. Enjoy the open view and the trail turns around and skates the edge of the bluffs. You pass the Swedish Immigrant Trail on your left. Continue along the top of the bluff until the stairs bring you back down. Pass the Railroad Trail on the left and you continue back to where you started.

Flora & Fauna

White-tailed deer, skunks, raccoons, squirrels, and many different birds
