This trail is almost entirely in upland deciduous forest with a full canopy of different kinds of oak and hickory trees. The trail overlaps at first with Oak Hickory Trail as they leave the nature center and follow a gentle grade up and along the hillside to the east. At the top of the hill, the junction divides Oak Hickory Trail off to the right. Forest Trail continues upslope and around the ravine. Gradually the trail turns north and follows a gentle slope down to the bottom where it intersects Whistle Trail. At this point, you can turn left and complete the remaining portion of Forest Trail or turn right and continue along Whistle Trail. Much of Forest Trails tread is narrow, rocky in some places.
