Not One But Two Tree Trails in Warner Parks

Tree Trails in WP

Did you know? Warner Parks have two separate Tree Trails, one in Percy Warner and one in Edwin Warner.

The Tree Trails were originally established in 1996 by Naturalists Margo Farnsworth and Judy Dulin, who wrote a comprehensive interpretive booklet detailing identification tips and noteworthy information about each tree.

The Old Roadway Tree Trail begins at The Natchez Trace Trailhead in Edwin Warner Park and follows the original scenic drive, now closed to cars.  To follow the Tree Trail, proceed in a clockwise direction along the roadway. Twenty-five separate native tree species are labeled along the trail, and identification markers can be found on tree trunks or wooden posts directly in front of the trees.

The Tornado Ridge Tree Trail begins at the Chickering Road Entrance of Percy Warner Park and follows both a scenic driving loop and the Tornado Road section of the Mossy Ridge Trail (i.e. Red Trail). Twenty-nine separate native tree species are labeled along the roadway and trail, and identification markers can be found on tree trunks or wooden posts directly in front of the trees.

Both Tree Trails’ ID markers were updated this year with support from FOWP, and were installed with love by Will Chamberlain, Paul Fowler, and Eleanore Law. Final 2021 updates are being made to the original Warner ParksTree Trails interpretive guide, which will soon be available!
