This nature trail offers a pleasant walk through a mixed hardwoods and pine forest. At the information kiosk by the parking lot, pick up a trail map and key to the numbered nature stops. The trail offers two choices, a short 1-mile loop and a 2.2-mile loop with an excellent view of Densons Creek. Both loops are well marked with white blazes. The longer loop provides opportunities to enjoy the hilly terrain and the tributaries of the creek. Evidence of Hurricane Fran in 1996 can still be seen. A few of the trees near the creek remain across the trail. These trees can be easily crossed and provide a good opportunity to study the effects of high wind on this bottomland forest. Benches along the trail provide opportunities to relax and listen to the forest sounds. The town of Troy has a nature trail that joins the longer Densons Creek Trail and is marked with orange blazes. Be sure to follow the white blazes back to the trailhead and parking lot.
