Nature trail

View depressions of earth lodges of the people who occupied this area in the late 1700s. Educators may want to encourage students to form a human ring to compare the size.  The Kitkahahki band once walked these trails in search of game, returning from a raid, or gardening nearby. The nature trail makes an excellent outdoor classroom and has picnic facilities.
