This connecting trail provides a short hike along a lush streambed valley, drawing its moniker from the many young Pawpaw trees growing in the area. To access this path, you may enter from the Museum Trail and proceed down a slowly curving path on the hillside. A set of stairs and a footbridge lead to the fern-filled valley floor. Continue straight through the valley, passing by the bridge which marks the beginning of Woodpecker and Kentucky Coffeetree Trails. Then proceed toward a steady incline to the trailhead. Make sure to stop for a close-up view of the magnificent Tulip Tree at the top of the trail! From here you can follow the gravel service road left to join Warbler Road, or right to arrive in the corner of the Museum employee parking lot.
