Fontana Woodland Trail

Fontana Woodland Trail




The Fontana Woodland Trail takes you through a community of a mixed hardwood forest. A variety of trees, plants, and animals make this their home. As you are walking, try to imagine how your life is enhanced by the many different plants and animals, and you will understand how important it is to have natural areas such as this.

Illustrated interpretive signs have recently replaced the numbered posts along this trail and help visitors look for and learn more about the wildlife, plants and geology of the area. Conservation volunteers, Tom and Jodi Klingman of Oelwein helped to put the new signs in place and are assisting in finding sponsors. Those who sponsor a sign will have their name - or business name - printed on a plaque accompanying the sign.

The picking of flowers and plants is not allowed, but noncommercial berry-picking and nut-gathering is permitted. Please stay on the trails and enjoy your visit to the Fontana forest.
