Description: Learning to identify trees without leaves can be fun and gives you a warm feeling of accomplishment on a winter's day. With leaves gone, the bark, twigs, and overall shape stand out and can make some identification easier.

The East Coast Greenway is a biking and walking trail connecting cities and natural areas along the East Coast. The portion of the ECGW in Baltimore's Druid Hill park runs between upland and floodplain portions of the Park's forested areas. Biking to the hike is encouraged, weather permitting.
