Enjoy this clean and safe preserve, and travel three miles of crushed-gravel trail through open areas of gently rolling hills that feature views of the marsh and scattered groves of trees. A wide range of plants and animals make their homes here. The wetland supports many species and is a great spot to view waterfowl such as pied-billed grebes and American coots. Hiking, trail biking, and cross country skiing.

Beautiful and clean. Great for dog walking. Wide paths decrease chance of being run over with bikes, other walkers, etc. Highly recommended.

Ran a 5k here in August. It was a pretty easy trail for a run.
