Attention visitors. Beginning on February 13th, the vehicular bridge on Glencoe Road immediately south of the Education Building will be closed for approximately 120 days for replacement. During this time, visitors can still utilize the Highway 109 entrances to access the Lime Kiln Trail, Turkey Ridge Trail, Wildlife Habitat Trail, and picnic areas. However, in order to access the Education Center, Green Rock Trail, and Rock Quarry Trail, visitors will be directed around a ~5 mile detour. The Trail Among the Trees will remain accessible from both sides of the bridge. However, during construction it will not be possible to easily walk the road between the two trailheads – because the foot bridge adjacent to the construction site will be temporarily closed too. Therefore, hiking on this trail will temporarily be limited to in and back use. Also, be aware that the Trail Among the Trees has a foot bridge out at the halfway point that requires through hikers to cross a ravine or turn around.
In Wildwood from Highway 100, take Highway 109 south for 2 miles, then Woods Avenue west 50 yards, and Glencoe Road north to Rockwoods.
This is a predominantly forest area. Facilities/features: picnic areas and a pavilion, hiking trails, viewing blind, and a permanent stream (Hamilton Creek). The area also has a Conservation Education Center.
