Where to See It
Fairly good examples of the Basic Mesic Hardwood Forest occur
1) low in the ravine on Cross Trail 2 near Riley Springs Bridge (north of Picnic Area 10), and
More patches can be found in southern Battery Kemble Park and along the Black Horse Trail in the bottom of a small ravine across Rock Creek from the Miller Cabin.
Map tip: To locate these places along trails, go to the interactive map of Rock Creek Park and search for "good places" or place names like "battery kemble" or "miller cabin."
