Spirit Sanctuary Trail
Description: A quick and easy out-and-back, the Spirit Sanctuary provides a variety of terrain in a short span.

Good for a quick meander through nice woods with bird and other wildlife viewing opportunities, the Spirit Sanctuary Trail is a great, quick getaway. It is possible to connect with the Black Kettle Trails at the end of the path.
