The trail provides the opportunity to experience the differences between an open hardwood forest ecosystem and the dark, cool hemlock forest ecosystem. A small waterfall and spring add another layer of natural features to the hike. Over nine miles of trail can be connected together in the PEEC area to fill the entire day.

Restrooms are located in the main building. Trail guides are available for a nominal fee at the main building.
