St. Mary of the Woods | Le Fer Lake Trail
The Lake Le Fer Trail is a moderately trafficked trail around a small lake on the St. Mary of the Woods campus. The half-mile trail at Lake Le Fer is part of an even larger revitalization effort at the school. Volunteers have removed invasive vegetation and replaced it with a bank-stabilizing native seed mix, rebuilt the trail path, planted 100 native trees, and installed benches made of recycled materials. This trail project was supported by a $15,000 grant from the Duke Energy Foundation.
