Features Birding · Fall Colors · River/Creek · Spring · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Family Friendly Easy, short trails make this a great starting point for beginning hikers.

Open dawn till dusk. Is usually plowed after a snowfall, but it never hurts to call and ask. (610) 353-5587.

Description

A short, easy trail through the forest with a brief peek into an open meadow. Follow the arrows from the parking lot and along the Red Loop/ Yellow Loop before breaking off from the Red Loop to turn back into the forest. Take a short jaunt along the meadow before heading back down into the forest and out into the parking area again. A great trail for new hikers or hikers with young children who are just learning about nature.

Flora & Fauna

Foxes, turkey, spring peepers and many other native wildlife live on this natural preserve.
