Nature Trail #1508 is a loop trail that starts out from the eastern end of Wolf Creek Campground, crossing over Little River by way of a picturesque footbridge. It then passes through mixed second-growth conifer and hardwood forests and meadows before ending in the western half of the campground. A variety of trees, shrubs, ground cover, and spring wildflower species can be seen from the trail, making the area a favorite ecology demonstration site for school groups.
