Very easy trail, also pretty boring. Most of the trail is a gravel road. The small part of the trail in the woods provided breathtaking views, but it was a very short time spent in the woods. I’d skip this one.

Nice trail, well maintained and marked. Mix of gravel road into some forest area along a creek. Lots of wildlife viewing opportunity, specially birds.

Fernald Preserve contains three out and back trails totaling 6 miles which run through mixed forested and prairie settings. They are all flat and easy and include some hiking on preserve roadways. The northern Hickory Trail is three miles long and includes a bird blind. To the south is the 1.9 mile Sycamore Trail and .7 mile Shingle Oak Trail which are both connected and include a number of side trails to areas of interest. There is also a museum in the center that tells the history of the Fernald Plant and its cleanup.
