TBD.  This is a morning activity (probably somewhere in the 9:30 range)

We will start by hiking the paved trail and observation deck before continuing onto the 1.5 mile loop trail that weaves through the mysterious mounds.  We will take breaks along the way to explore the various geological and other natural features.  This is a great hike for kids who are elementary school aged, but other children are welcome as well with proper planning by the parents.
