Almost as visible as a human trail

If you have the pleasure of walking in the woods this month, keep an eye out for deer trails.  They’re easy to spot now because the ground is soft, and hooved animals like deer leave pretty deep tracks.  They’ll be less visible soon as grasses grow and shrubs leaf out.  (Still, with a little practice, you can spot them any time of the year.)

Deer tracks look like this.

A little harder to spot

The trails around Clinton Lake are good places to look for deer tracks and trails.  These trails are also a good choice for little humans, especially the two behind the Army Corps of Engineers visitor center. For more about taking kids for walks in the woods, see this opinion piece printed in the Lawrence Journal World.
