Paw Paw Nature Trail

Fort Wild is Now Open at the end of the Trail!

Experience our 100-year-old forest.

A stroll through the Paw Paw Nature Trail is enchanting. The forest is alive with wildlife, "old trees" and seasonal wildflowers. A stroll through the 100-year-old forest will enchant the young and young-at-heart with an easy to navigate loop. Look high to catch a glimpse of barred owls (Strix varia), look low to spy box turtles and rare seasonal wildflowers such as Jack-in-the-Pulpit (Arisaema triphyllum) and bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis).
