Crossing several small streams and winding through a variety of woodland habitats, the 2.5 mile long orange-marked trail at Hannacroix Ravine Preserve has a few steep climbs. Note: Be sure to wear appropriate footgear, especially in the Spring or after a rainy period. Allow 90 minutes to complete the circuit.
Things To Do
There are some 100-year-old hemlocks along the creek. Other trees, most common in the area west of the creek, include beech, yellow birch, basswood, red oak, sugar maple and red pine. In the spring, visitors often find a brilliant display of wildflowers, including columbine, hepatica, Dutchman’s breeches and bloodroot.
