Eastern National Children’s Forest

The Eastern National Children’s Forest is a unique site offering an easy hike for children and others who want an outdoor experience without an arduous and challenging hike. In 1972, over 1,000 children converged on the site from surrounding states and planted pine trees on the site. Since the planting, a diverse forest ecology has developed with species of various soft and hardwoods.
