Description

(1.6 MILES)
DIFFICULTY: MODERATE

For the more experienced hiker, the Backcountry Trail provides welcome solitude. This trail twists and turns as it travels over hilly terrain in the rich northeastern part of the Nature Preserve. A great diversity of tree species and wildlife can be observed, as well as a magnificent display of spring wildflowers. Narrow pathways, exposed tree roots, and steady inclines/descents may challenge hiking skills. Although the Backcountry Trail is 1.6 miles in length, it must be accessed using Warbler Road or the Wilderness Lake Trail. Depending upon the route taken, the combined distance of this hike could be 3 to 3.5 miles.
