Biotic communities include upland and lowland deciduous woods, a grove of large eastern white pines, and a marsh with natural springs that flow into Sandstone Creek. This is one of the richest woodlands in Jackson County for spring wildflowers. A woodland hiking trail and boardwalk lead visitors safely through blankets of trillium in the spring.
