Name that Trail: This 2.25 mile trail is designated for hikers and mountain bikers. It winds its way through woods and old fields and along small intermittent streams. Maples and sycamore trees grace the banks of Little Bonne Femme Creek, which is crossed twice. At the eastern crossing, a 100-foot bridge provides a dry crossing. The western crossing lacks a bridge a may require minor wadding. Don’t know the answer?
