Description: We will hike the three-mile trail which traverses over dry, upland oak-hickory forests, moist, lowland forest and Silurian-aged barrens. Along the way we will identify the wildflowers and butterflies. Over 50 species of butterflies and over 250 plants have been observed at Carroll Cabin Barrens. The trail runs by a number of barrens. These are areas that naturally lack trees due to a very shallow soil depth.

carpool/caravan departs Arlington at 6:30 and will stop in Jackson for a quick McDonalds (20 chloe place) breakfast/bathroom break and depart at 8:00 am for anyone wanting to join us there.

After the hike, we will dine at MeoMios Cajun/Seafood in Bath Springs
