Holiday on the Holly Discovery Trail

The Holly Discovery Trail is a national award-winning interpretive experience geared for young folks and parents who are seeking outdoor opportunities for their children. The trail also wends its way through a beautiful riparian forest near Paddy’s Creek that’s full of wildlife. Ranger Jamie Cameron will lead the way around the .75-mile loop trail to point out birds, trees and anything else of interest. Meet at the Holly Discovery Trail parking lot in the Paddy’s Creek Area at 10 a.m.
