Nestled in the valley to the east of the Center, this dirt trail meanders along limestone bluffs, beside the scenic Fox Hollow Creek and through old riparian forest; all the while exploring the colorful personality of a deep, primitive, wetland valley. The entire length of the trail is 2 miles with early-out trails shown on the trail map. Benches are provided in a few areas along the path along with directional markers. The Fox Hollow Trail system is not appropriate for children in strollers as there are rocks and logs to step over and hills and valleys to traverse. Children may hike or be carried. 

• The trail is open each day, year-round, from dawn to dusk.
• Bicycles and motorized vehicles are prohibited.
• When not on a guided hike, dogs are welcome but must be on a leash and their waste picked up.

Behind Lakeside Nature Center is a graveled walking trail that runs roughly 1/3 mile. The trail is atop a limestone ridge that overlooks a valley below. Along the trail, signs provide information about the different habitats. Watch butterflies and hummingbirds, enjoy the prairie flowers, see bluebirds catch insects in the savanna, enjoy the shade of the oak and hickory trees and walk along the awesome Bethany Falls limestone boulders.
