An old wagon sits on the right. Farther down lies a giant Redwood log. A waterfall splashes over rocks and is surrounded by California native plants.

These are some of the highlights of the Sunshine Trail for the Blind in the San Joaquin County Historical Museum, located at Micke Grove Park. The trail, which measures 1,250 feet, was established in 1983 by members of Soroptimist International of Lodi as a way to educate the disabled about California's native flora.
