Stranger in the Woods

Written by Carl R. Sams and Jean Stoick

Come and participate in this self-guided StoryWalk® for PreK kids with adults! Enjoy the crisp winter air and learn about the wildlife around you.

About the Trail: This StoryWalk® takes place on the Crystal Springs Trail at Greenwood Park (across from Stone Zoo). Trail starts from the Parking Lot behind the granite wall. The trail is an easy walk, about ¼ mile. Trail CAN accommodate jogging strollers.
