Visitors should be careful to stay on the trails, however, as stinging nettle and poison ivy are commonly found in the forest, and visitors who stray from the trails risk causing harm to the more than 75 fairy abodes. Those tiny homes were built with the help of about 40 local businesses and organizations and include a fairy shop, a tiny recycling plant, a and even a branch of the United Fairy Postal Service, where young visitors can send mail and receive letters from the fairies. Balogh said more than 2,500 letters were sent and received via the trail last year, and she estimated more than 5,000 people passed through Mound Park in search of the fairy homes. Most of the letter writers are chil- dren, but occasionally some parents or other adults passing through will write in, thanking the fairies for choosing their park because the trail provides some much needed reprieve and peace in what can be a very stressful world. Though the trail has existed each summer since 2018, images of the fairy homes went viral on social media in 2020, near the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, when families sought safe outdoor activities.
