Take a stroll along the banks of the Black River and walk into history with a look at the Philips/Reeves Cemetery. The trailhead, found in the histories town site, runs along the high bank of the Black River through the surrounding forest. It crosses a spillway stream near the river and continues up the wooded hillside, past the gate of the Phillips/Reeves Cemetery, to the dam on the south side of Trapper Lake.
