Lost Maples State Natural Area
Things to Do
Visitors enjoy picnicking, , backpacking, sightseeing, hiking, photography, bird watching, fishing, swimming and nature study. People should stay on designated trails, because maples have a shallow root system, and soil compaction from walking can damage the trees. Also, many natural hazards exist due to the steep and rugged terrain. Do not hike or climb on rocks or hillsides.
