The twenty-acre estate is well maintained and also features a half-mile Buffalo Trace nature trail. Take a leisurely walk and see a replication a prairie with switch grass, indian grass, big and little blue stem, and pyrethrum daisy seeds. Milk weed will also be planted to attract monarch butterflies as they migrate to Mexico. Native plant life and trees will be identified and described along the nature trail. You can also take a breather on our limestone benches that overlook the historic Buffalo Trace.
For years, buffalos would form "buffalo traces" by digging large mud holes in search for food as they roamed the lands on their nomadic journeys. The buffalo would come through French Lick and lick the salt deposits that rose up from the underground springs.
Due to recent heavy rainfall the completion of the Buffalo Trace Nature Trail is behind schedule, but should be completed soon. However, the Buffalo Trace prairie and native flowers will not be planted until the spring of 2016.
