A barrier-free arrival area and ¼-mile trail welcomes guests of most abilities. This new trail, funded in part by a grant from Rotary Charities, was built according to ADA standards for recreation trails and never rises above a 10% grade. It meanders through the woods from the trailhead to the amphitheater.
Guests who are unable to hike the rest of the trails, may request a tour on a golf cart, May – October. Please contact Renee at least one week in advance: (231) 378-4963.
