The 0.4 mile, loop trail meanders through an urban woodlot. The trail is surfaced in crushed shale.

Work continues to remove Chinese privet and other invasive plants so native species may flourish in this little, urban woodlot. More than 130 birds have been spotted in the area. Search C. Maurice Lewis Natural Resources Complex on for a full list of species.

Be on the lookout for the brown-headed nuthatch. It is among few birds that use tools. It pries into trees with a piece of bark to expose insects. Nuthatch hollow offers nesting and foraging areas for other wildlife such as box turtles, ground skinks, opossums and raccoons.
