Licorice Fern News – New Trails


Homestead Trail

We have two new gravel trails

Our Homestead Trail leads from the entrance, past the tools and work area, down to an overlook above Thornton Creek. To get to the creek itself, you must still negotiate a rougher trail.

The 130th Street Trail follows the level of the extension of NE 130th Street to an overlook down into the Natural Area. Under two big-leaf maples  you can view the creek, trees, and birds.

Friends of Licorice Fern Natural Area deeply appreciate the financial support we received in 2014 for improvements to the Natural Area.. Funding and Project support came from:
