Great for practicing track and scat identification and looking for wildflowers in the Spring. There is a small seasonal creek that crosses the middle of the trail with a wood bridge.

The map below of the Woodlans Discovery Trail was created using GPS (you'll need to zoom in to see it). The fully interactive map with an elevation profile tool can be found at Wikiloc. Wikiloc is not only a great website to share GPS tracks and waypoints, but a fantastic place to read about trails! Check out our trail and others!
Dogs are wonderful animals that give comfort and companionship. We love them, however, the nature center is not the best place for them. Dogs can chase, scare and transmit diseases to wild animals such as nesting birds or mammals.
Dogs leave behind a "predator" scent typical of all wild canines like wolves and coyotes. This scent can linger in the area for long periods of time and can disrupt or alter the behavior of the native animals the nature center has been set aside to protect and teach about. Dogs are not permitted on trail except service dogs.
