“An oasis of forest and meadows through the 55-acre Hildacy Farm Preserve.”— Mae Axelrod
Keep to the left to continue along the Red Loop along Crum Creek. Eventually you'll see a crowd of new trees where the Preserve is planting a riparian buffer. Make your way up a hill and along a forest trail till you get to Hilda's Meadow, a wide open green space.
Then head back through the forest to loop back to the parking lot. There are several trails that connect with the Red Loop, so you can visit several times and add variety into your journey.
Birds include Wood Duck, Belted Kingfisher, American Kestrel, Baltimore Oriole, Eastern Bluebird, and resident Red-shouldered Hawk. There is a birding checklist available during office hours in the main building.
