Aquatic Trail

Length: 9.75 Miles View map

Pick up the Aquatic Trail Guide at one of various locations in the park before launching on this unique trail, which takes boaters to some of the park’s natural communities. A diversity of woodlands, glades, streams and geological structures can be viewed. Among the stops, you may be able to see how swallows use the bluffs in the park, how chert is formed and why glades are being lost to cedar invasion. This trail is accessible from the water only. Buoys marked “Aquatic Trail” are placed at various locations between the Grand Glaize Beach (PB #2) and the main campground (PB #1). Each buoy is marked with a letter corresponding to a letter in the Aquatic Trail Guide. You must provide your own boat.
