Wild Iris Trail

Length: 1.7 miles
Difficulty: Moderate

Wild Iris is an easy woodland trail, two and a half miles in length with less than a 100 foot elevation change along the way. The trail begins at Cherry Gap Road near the Fireman’s Park Playground. This moderate trail is great for hiking, biking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing.

Because of the openness of this trail, many wildflowers and shrubs are visible during spring and summer. You may wish to bring a berry bucket in case it is blackberry season (usually mid to late July into early August.) Also, see if you can locate the small cave beside the trail as you enjoy your hike.

If you are into cross-country skiing, this trail is the perfect spot just after a new winter snow.
