Important information and trail safety for Barnum Creek Nature Reserve and Dahl Forest

  • Please keep dogs on a leash and remain on marked trails. This will help avoid unfortunate interactions with wildlife such as porcupines and ticks.
  • Please carry ALL waste out with you, including dog waste bags.
  • The entrance gate to Barnum Creek N.R. is now closed.  You may also park along Gould Crossing Rd. either near the gate or near the rail trail crossing.
  • The hike up Gould Crossing Road is short (about 5-10 minutes) but quite steep so please use caution and take your time if this is your first visit. It is a multi-use road so keep to the side of the road.
