Ridge Trail

Where the forest thins, enjoy the expansive view of the wetland that the creek feeds. This wetland is a transition zone between land and water and is teeming with life. In the early spring, you can observe several amphibians, such as the northern cricket frog, leopard frog, spring peeper, green frog, American toad, and Fowler’s toad. Their loud calls indicate an active breeding season that is reliant on the ephemeral streams and ponds left behind by winter snowmelt and rain.
