Tulip Poplar is a .8 mile, easy, multi-use trail. It can be accessed from the Big Oak Trail at the west end of the park. This trail is wooded with many large trees, including oaks and poplars, providing lots of shade in the summer months. Watch for a vernal pool on the west side of the trail that empties during dry seasons. This trail can be part of a circuit hike that includes the Redtail Ridge, Big Oak and Shale Barrens trails.
