Purple Trail

Purple Trail

Mixed Species Secondary Forest

The Sun Singer Statue

The shortest of Allerton Natural Areas, this trail starts and ends with nice vantage points of the Sun Singer statue. The surrounding forest is an early successional forest composed of honey locust, elms, oaks and hickories. The small opening in the forest along this trail was once the site of a tower similar to the one in the Fu Dog Garden.

This trail crosses the Brown Trail. Be sure to use the map placards and map brochures to find your way so you do not miss out on this unique part of the Allerton Park Natural Areas.
