Length: 3.25 Miles View map

Flowering dogwoods in the spring and warm blazes of color in the fall make Woodland Trail a rewarding hike. This trail goes through the 1,275-acre Patterson Hollow Wild Area, where you can enjoy the native woodlands without any man-made intrusions. This is the only trail in the park where backpacking is allowed. A designated camp is found along the trail. A .4-mile connector trail will allow you to shorten this trail to approximately 1.75 miles.  The connector trail is marked with white blazes. A topographic map, a compass or GPS are recommended for hiking this trail.
