Please note: Enter off Butterfield as entrance from Mack is closed due to construction. Blackwell's gently rolling hilly terrain features oak and hickory woodlands, prairies, grasslands and wetlands that attract a variety of native wildlife, including wild turkeys, deer, bald eagles, great blue herons, coyotes, red foxes and muskrats. Blackwell's McKee Marsh, located north of Mack Road, features trails and two vernal ponds where amphibians such as the northern leopard frog breed. Bird species such as the wood duck, blue-winged teal and solitary sandpiper forage in the area. You can walk, jog, bike, cross-country ski or ride horseback on most trails at Blackwell. If you're bringing a horse trailer, please park it at the McKee Marsh lot on Mack Road and do not ride in picnic areas, campgrounds or other developed areas.Show more
