This preserve offers a two-mile trail—a former farm road—through old agricultural land, most of which is now oak forest. The route passes a beaver pond on adjacent 4-H land and returns by way of grassy Old Kings Highway.
What to See: Plants
The forest on the preserve is dominated by red and black oaks, with shrubs including huckleberry, blueberry, mountain laurel and witch hazel.
What to See: Animals
Keep an eye out for great blue and green-backed herons as well as painted turtles in the ponds.
