As mentioned in an earlier post, DLNR will be cutting a new trail from the lower parking area up to the NC.
Have found out that almost the entire NC area from the base of the mountain to the stream below was once an Aboretum. Many of the non-native plants we see on various local trails came from that source. Attached are some interesting plants you will see along parts of the new trail .
The new Nature Center building is almost done. Work is beginning on the interior finish, and landscaping soon to follow. FYI, the old restrooms will be refurbished and made ADA accessible. Handicap parking stalls will be built in front of the restrooms (where our HURT V aid station was this year).
See you at Volcano Marathon!
