LIMESTONE HILL TRAIL
Limestone Hill Trail is a steep and rugged hike with challenging slopes and rough terrain. The trail leads along the base of a limestone bluff, up a hill through an oak, hickory and cedar woodland and across the hilltop with scenic views of Seckman valley. The trail is often shaded by a variety of trees such as honey locust, sugar maple, dogwood, white oak, hackberry and cedars. Among the deep ravines and rough, protruding boulders, wildflowers such as columbine and wild hydrangea can be found growing among woody vines and trumpet creepers. Small yellow and red funnel shaped mushrooms may be spotted poking through the dark green mosses on the limestone boulders. There are several benches and overlooks along the trail.
