? Take Me There
In the town of North Rose you will come across a small sign for the hiking trail. Drive up the path and it will open up to a parking lot. This trail is fantastic with raised wooden boardwalk trail throughout for easy accessibility with wheels. Here you will find a great variety of animals in the air and on the ground. Keep your eyes peeled! The path is easy and short as it is a .6 mile loop.
The Fairy Houses
There is a natural fairy house trail at the end of the walking bridge in Huckleberry Swamp. Here you can visit the existing houses and also build your own to add to the trail. This is a part of the trail which gets buggy fast! Please note with this being a swamp there are many mosquitoes- long sleeves and pants as well as bug spray is highly recommended.
