The 0.4-mile Tree ID Trail is a footpath meandering through a variety of habitats from a dry, upland site to a moist brookside.

The 0.4-mile Crosscut Trail passes through a 14-acre site cleared in 2001 to improve the health and diversity of the forest, as well as to diversify the wildlife habitat at Sessions Woods. ¬†Hike this trail to see how a “new forest” is generated!
