Yellow Trail
Length: 0.4 km Difficulty: Medium Time: 10-15 minutes

The yellow trail cuts through the Maple and Ash dominant forest of the Sugar Bush. Because of this, it has been hit hard by the invasion on Emerald Ash Borer. This makes it a very interesting habitat to watch for other species of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants are beginning to flourish. As old Ashs fall, nutrients return to the soil and shelter is created for animals. In spring, the forest floor abounds with spring ephemeral wildflowers like trilliums, jack-in-the-pulpit, marsh marigold, skunk cabbage, and other herbaceous plants. Migrating warblers, vireos, blue jays, american robin, owls and many other species of birds bring this trail to life during the Spring and Summer seasons. This is also prime habitat for viewing White-tailed Deer and is fantastic for autumn photography.
