Habitat Loop Trail

Pisgah State Park

Autumn Leaves

Explore and investigate some of the native plants and animals found in this area, perhaps keep track with a photo or add to iNaturalist. With the change of the seasons, new sights and sounds can be found along the Habitat Loop Trail.  Listen as the forest wakes up in the spring with calls from amphibians and birds. See the sunlight reach to the forest floor where wildflowers bloom before the dark green leaves of summer closes the gaps. Summer is alive with buzzing insects and scurrying sounds of chipmunks and squirrels. As the temperature cools, the beautiful bright colors of red, yellow, and gold are seen in the fall, followed by winter's sparkling snow where tracks can be found that may tell the secrets of the wildlife that live here.
