With the exception of one steep climb, this half mile interpretive hike is fairly level and stable. Wildlife is plentiful especially at dawn and dusk.

This half-mile red-blazed interpretive loop offers eight learning stations. Interpretive booklets are available at the park office. The trail has a brief steep climb then levels off for the remainder of the path. The land for the park was acquired in 1948 and much of the woodland looks the same today. Woodpeckers, raccoon, owls, white-tailed deer and gray squirrels make this park home.

Directions: From Radford, VA, From I-81, take Exit 101 to State Rt. 660 which takes you directly to the park entrance. Trailhead is located at the picnic area.
