historic site

The Copernicus Hill Trail is a maintained trail which winds over steep slopes to the summit and back. At the top, you will find a monument to the Polish-born Nicolaus Copernicus (founder of modern astronomy 1473-1543); a plaque describes his work that changed the course of human history. A viewing tower provides a spectacular northward view and a great spot to for a break or snack. From here, hikers can access the Glad Lake trail or continue back down the hill slide to the trailhead.
