This mostly steeply-sloping 15.6 acre area includes a mix of forest with a history of disturbance along with high-quality mature-to-old-growth forest. A boardwalk trail passes over seeps at the toe of the slope before ascending through hemlock and hardwood forests with a rich diversity of wildflowers.
