Old Stone Fort - Wall Trail, page 2

Trail Notes

Water and restrooms are available at the Museum -Visitors Center.

The trails are mostly shaded.

The trailhead has a large parking area.

The Optional Trails are spurs that lead to additional scenic areas.

The Alternate Trails are accessed from the western side of the Wall Trail (about mile 0.80). Hiking all three trails adds 2.10 miles to the Wall Trail mileage. The trails are also the easiest means of approaching the Duck and Little Duck Rivers.

The Enclosure Farm Road is used by walkers. In the morning it is shaded for almost the entire loop.

There are many social trails in the Park, especially near the rivers.

There were quite a few other visitors enjoying the Park with us. A group of four were trail running.

Trial on east side of the Enclosure

The two maps did not agree on a few of the names of trails or destinations. A few clarifications: Step Falls and Little Falls on the Little Duck River are the same. The Old River Channel Trail and the Moat Trail are the same trail. One section of the Little Duck River Loop Trail is the Backbone. The Wall Trail and Old Stone Fort trails are the same.
