Activities: Hiking, walking

Last Visit: 2021

Notes: Very buggy in the summer, recommend visiting in the fall or winter. Trails can get very muddy.

This is a large preserve with over 7-miles of trails situated just north of the Merritt Parkway. Truth be told however, we rarely visit. On our first couple of trips we found the combination of deep-woods and marshy terrain equated to a higher than normal concentration of mosquitoes and biting flies. We are long past due for a return visit because of this, though it should be very pleasant in the winter when the mud freezes and the bugs are long gone.
