Braille Trail

0

When this trail was first founded in 1967 it was the first of its kind in the country – a chance for blind people to experience the forest, smells, sounds, the feel of the trees, all being educated by the series of informative signs in braille. The trail passes through beautiful spruce-fir and mixed coniferous forests, and can be a good place to see (and hear!) species such as Gray Jay, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Mountain Chickadee, Brown Creeper, and others.
