The purple trail can be used to create alternative loops. Hikers will find Eastern Hemlock trees along this trail. It is a long-lived tree which unlike many species grows well in shade. On this trail one will come across beech trees whose trunk resembles an elephants leg.
There are many beech trees which look very ornamental with its smooth gray bark. In some parts of the trail you will find maple and ash trees providing shade along the trails. Check this area for woodland butterflies like the Eastern Comma, pictured above. Take a deep breath, relax, and reflect on your place in the world.
Take a shortcut, do a loop-de-loop and experience the Purple Trail today. Enjoy all the woodlots of Hullett. Information provided by the Hullett Wildlife website.
Please refer to the excellent Hullett Marsh Trail map for accurate trails and walking locations. MAP
