Trail Guide

White Oak Park | Yellow Trail

1.5 miles | Moderate    Download this trail guide

This 1.5 mile trail is moderate in difficulty and travels through a variety of habitats and landscapes. There are several ways to access the Yellow Trail; we recommend parking at the trailhead behind and up the hill from the park Administration Building on Muse Lane near Angora Gardens. Turn off Muse Lane and drive past the small parking area in front of Angora Gardens. Pull around the right side of the building and look for the short gravel driveway on your right, just before the fuel pumps. Park at the trailhead kiosk and follow the trail markers straight ahead, passing the meadow on your left. Enter the trees and look for markers for the Yellow Trail to your right. Once you get to the Yellow Trail stay to the right to travel the loop in a counterclockwise direction. After about 0.25 miles you will climb onto an old strip mine bench and continue to gradually climb another 0.25 miles until you cross a sunny, unblazed, mowed trail. Descend for 0.25 miles to a service road. Cross the service road to stay on Yellow. At the service road, you can also access the three- mile-long Orange Trail for a longer experience. As you gradually descend into and then climb out of this stream valley you will encounter many large poplar, oak and maple trees. From the service road it’s about one mile until you’re back where you started on the Yellow Trail.
