In 2015, Southern gave the name “Fenton Forest” to its wooded areas on Bauxite Ridge. This immortalizes a series of parables—based in a fictional Fenton Forest—written by former Southern president Gordon Bietz, which he frequently used as sermon illustrations. The trail names in this area are also inspired by the stories.
All are welcome to enjoy Southern’s trails, surrounded by God’s beautiful creations. Please respect the facilities and follow the posted blazes, notices, and etiquette.
