Interpretive trail guides:
Glacial Park: Four guides (Geology, Cultural History, Plant Life and Wildlife) are available at the Lost Valley Visitor Center. The two-mile interpretive trail begins at the Visitor Center parking lot and follows the Deerpath trail loop. Experience this 3,300-acre gem while you discover the natural heritage of your surroundings.

Rush Creek: A self-guided interpretive trail guide can be found at the visitor sign. The numbered posts on the 1.5-mile trail correspond to the “natural narratives” found in the guide.
