Heading up. It's about 4,000 feet to the top.
Beautiful well maintained trails
With quite a few switchbacks
and some cute critters
The first mound we see is a linear mound
Next is one of the many effigy mounds. Little Bear. Hard to see from the photo, but one could clearly see the outline of a bear.
Another photo of Little Bear from the other side.
You can see the conical mounds to the right in the photo.
I found this so beautiful and serene. The conical mounds ran the length of these woods all the way to Fire Point overlook.
View to the south
Pods from the Kentucky Coffee tree.

In the visitor's center, watching a 15 minute movie about the mounds.
and visiting the museum.
You can see where we walked in this ariel view.
