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.
