Description

The Zoo Trail is named after the Cherry Brook Zoo that used to exist in the north end of the park. This trail is a wide, gravel road that used to provide access to the zoo. The Zoo Trail bisects the park, passes by four lakes, and provides access to many of the single track trails in the park (listed below). There are also several interpretive signs along the trail.
