Shepherd Nature trail is a fairly new short 0.8 mile trail in Duke Forest. They have added nature facts signage recently. Good for a nature trip, can be combined with other fire road trails to increase the distance.

We had an easy, relaxing and fun family hike here on a nice summer day last July. One of many options in the large Duke Forest.
