Series of interconnected trails for IU Research off of Headley Road. Lots of accessible areas but some will be off limits for time to time due to extensive research by the IU teams.

Nice views of the reservoir, especially from the Weir Trail across the street from the small IU parking lot. The spur that goes down to the water is particularly pretty.

Multiple trails make up the system around Griffy Reservoir (aka Griffy Lake). These trails are visited frequently and range from easy to moderate. The trails are decently maintained and well marked. There are numerous sites to pause and admire almost the system including the lake and numerous streams-creeks. There are trail closures due to weather, damage, and research areas so watch for posted signs at trail heads.

Nice set of trails just south of Griffy Lake. Trails on both sides of the road and most are really well marked loop trails with lots to see and some info signs about the preserve along the way.
