Flint Creek Trail

See various species of plant and animal life associated with an oak-hickory forest

Flint Creek Trail is located on the north side of Highway 67, approximately 200 yards west of the Visitor Center entrance. This 1.5 mile scenic trail offers an opportunity to see various species of plant and animal life associated with an oak-hickory forest. Two boardwalks cross Flint Creek. For a short loop, take the first trail to the left after you cross the second bridge.\ For a longer loop, continue straight ahead and pass the covered pavilion. Common trees including hickory, oak, red maple, sweetgum, yellow poplar, and dogwood create shade for most of the trail. Sassafras, witch hazel, grapevine, and greenbriers are common understory species. Chipmunks, squirrels, woodpeckers, wrens, and northern cardinals are commonly seen. Many different species of warblers can also be heard or seen during their spring and fall migrations. Although a universally accessible fishing pier s available, the trail past the boardwalk, might prove difficult for someone with special needs. The trail is open daily, daylight hours only
