Arrowheads found during construction of this trail indicate that the Wampanoag hunted dear and small game in this hilly area. In addition the Indians relied upon the nearby Herring Run as a direct source of food and to fertilize their crop of corn and beans - a practice later adapted by Pilgrim farmers.
Staghorn Sumac, the low tree surrounding you, provided a refreshing drink made from its red berries, only one of the many fruits important to the Indian diet.
