East Berlin, Pennsylvania
October 6, 2006
This is an interpretive trail and you do yourself a disservice if you don't buy the guide to read as you go along (50 cents or borrow it). Since we had 4 boys with us (mine and my nephew) we let them take turns reading at the different stops. The guide explains the flora, fauna, and terrain details quite well and some of the hike is in the welcome shade. Allow half an hour to an hour or so.
While this is a nice trail to do, and worth the time since it's different (in content) than the others, if you are constrained by time, pick either Door or Window to do for a better look at the interior of the Badlands themselves.
