Children’s Discovery Trail

Children’s Discovery Trail

Hike the Children’s Discovery Trail!
Energize your senses and find natural wonders at Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center!

The Discovery Trail runs from the Reflection Riding Loop entrance to the A-Frame shelter.

On your way:
Look for chewed nuts and leaves. What other food choices are on the menu? Can you find two web sites? (Hint: Spiders)

“Sense”-ability 

Look:
How many different shades of green do you see?
Find a  tree or a plant the same size as you.

Smell:
Scratch and sniff a star-shaped leaf and the bark on a pine tree.  Smell the dirt!

Feel:
Touch the bark on three different trees, find something that tickles, and feel the sun on your face.

Listen:
Do you hear any animals? The birds and the bees are always talking. Shh. Listen!

What lives in the Neighborhood?
What animal houses can you discover? Look up! Look down!
