  • 40 miles of well maintained trails through forests and around multiple ponds, streams, a lake and a river. Some trails are just for hiking while others allow bikes and horses. Kayaking​ also allowed in the waterways. All free and open year round. There is a $6 fee if you want to visit the nature museum. It is a great little museum with taxidermied native animals in dioramas as well as exhibits of geology, astronomy, ecology, biology etc. Lots of live wildlife to view from the boardwalks. Picnic benches are also available to use for free. There is also a marina and campgrounds​ that I did not visit on my first outing here.
  • Great for weekend hikes! Our dog loves it here. Mosquitos and ticks can be quite bad, so be sure to wear repellant. Extensive trail network, open fields, tables for picnics. Even when it's crowded, you can still enjoy some solitude on the trails. Check out the hawk and owl behind the main building!
  • Nice trails. Could have more detailed maps available but there are a lot posted around. Nicely maintained.
  • Very beautiful place. Boardwalk was amazing.
  • There arent a ton of high overlook views, but the preserve itself is my favorite by far. The many of the trails are wide and make for great biking. You can see through the forest under the pines, the walks through the wetlands are magical and the smells of the forest are amazing. There is an owl and a hawk you can quietly admire in their large cages by the museum. I keep walking though clouds of sweet grape smell when I'm here, what is it!
