The magic has returned to Infirmary Mound Park. The fairies and other wee folk have migrated back to the Wildflower Trail. Their village will be up from May 1st through the month of September!
To access the trail, park at the Shelter 6 parking area. Visit the sign near the playground and grab a map. Follow the signs and map around Mirror Lake to the start of the Fairy Trail. If Shelter 6 is full, you can park at the Shelter 5/horse gravel lot and follow the signs from there as well. The start of the Wildflower/Fairy Trail is about 1/4 mile from the parking area at Shelter 6. The actual Fairy Trail is a 1/4-mile loop.
The wee folk wanted us to share some Fairy Directives while visiting: Please be kind! Follow all current health guidelines. Leave No Trace! PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE ANY GLITTER, TRASH, OR PLASTIC. These can hurt the fairy friends.
Please stay on trial! There are plants like poison ivy and stinging nettle in the woods in this area! Please leave houses as you find them so the next visitors can experience the magic as well.
