Located near Lebanon, this trail leads visitors on a historic tour of Sellars Farm State Archaeological Area. Although not physically connected to Long Hunter State Park, this site is managed by the park.
Sellars Farm was once inhabited by the Mississippian Period Indians from about 1000 to 1300 AD. A large mound - and several smaller ones - are still visible today. The site includes an informative kiosk which tells the story of the ancient village and people who lived there; the kiosk features photos, drawings, and diagrams. The trail itself meanders through a scenic prairie and ultimately leads to peaceful, shimmering Spring Creek. Our state wildflower, the Passionflower, can be found along the trail, while the creek area boasts tree species such as Bur Oak, Beech, Sycamore, and American Hornbeam. This site is also known for its wide variety of dragonflies, damselflies and butterflies.
