Scuppernong Trail is a 5-mile hike in the northeast area of Kettle Morain's Southern Unit offering geologic sights.

The Scuppernong Springs Nature Trail has several special features including a historic trout pond built in the 1870s. Still present today are the bubbling spring waters and the remains of a facility where marl was collected from the marshes. (Marl is loose, crumbly soil used as a fertilizer and a product for making cement.) An incredible 190 different plant species grow along the trail attracting a large percentage of the 225 identified bird species that either migrate or make the Forest their home.
