This week's featured trail is Chichaqua Valley Trail.

This 20-mile segment is a branch off of a 110-mile loop that crosses the forested banks and timbered bluffs of the Skunk River. The river got this particular name because local pioneers interpreted the Native American word, “Chichaqua” to mean “skunk.” The word actually refers to the odor of the wild onions that once grew along the river’s banks.
