In December, after the three of us went to a volunteer workday at Watson, we stopped by the Big Woods Trail in Woodville at Heritage Village. I only found out this trail existed back in October when I did a different volunteer event at the Village with a couple of other Watson folks but at the time I didn’t have time to explore the trails. This time I had an agenda (hopefully more on that soon!) and I was also just curious about the trails, too.
Here’s what we saw:
There are less than a mile of trails but all of the little side trails make it feel as if you have walked further than you have. I was appreciative of the trail map, something you don’t get very often at trailheads, even those run by state or federal agencies.
I hope to dip back into this trail from time to time over the next year and see what else might be popping. I know there is witch hazel out there and from photos I’ve seen others have been sharing, it should be blooming right now.
