For more than 60 years, herons nested here along Little Calumet River. Though the heron rookery is no longer active, the 1.6-mile trail is a good spot for viewing other bird species. National Lakeshore resource managers conduct prescribed burns to maintain open savanna habitat. In springtime, the woods along the trail are carpeted with wildflowers, including trillium, Dutchman's breeches, hepatica, and mayapple.
