About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This short, easy, year-round trail meanders under the cool, protective trees of Squak Mountain State Park. It is a treat for kids because of the story boards and for adults who may like to wander in the woods before or after their hike up Double Peak Loop Trail. Story boards along the trail illustrate the adventures of Field Mouse as he meets local forest creatures and discovers their importance in the ecosystem on his search for the Pretzel Tree. Birds and various kinds of natural habitat abound.

Hike it Baby Trail Guide is managed by the Family Trail Guide team. If a trail has been “abandoned” by the initial owner, it gets adopted by the team. Also, if there are no trails in the area, the Family Trail Guide team researches trails that are family friendly in the area to insure that hikes cover all areas where Hike it Baby hikes.
