This one is great. Lots of water fowl. I love to go here during the Mute Deer rut to see big bucks. A number of Elk inhabit the preserve. Also, porcupines are abundant and fun to see. Be sure to take the Shepherd's Bottom Loop and climb the tower that offers a terrific view of the Green River bottoms. All is driveable, though I have hiked the five mile Shepherd's Bottom loop twice.
