Trees of the Forest Interpretive Trail, part of the Lake Sylvia Recreation Area, offers visitors a paved/gravel path through the forest with interpretive signs along way describing the trees of the forest. The paved path begins at the parking area at the end of the park road. At 0.2-miles, the path transitions to a hard-packed gravel path.

Short trail, good for small kids. Trail is not heavily used and could use a bit of love, but overall OK. There are no picturesque overlooks, just a walk in the woods. Interpretive signs along the trails describe different tree species that are in this forest. Note that the Forest Service trail map indicates that this trail is 0.4-miles in length, but my GPS and a guidebook both indicate the total trail length at 0.6-miles.
