This site was a working quarry until 1974. In 1977 the conservation district purchased the 336 acre property and began rejuvenation efforts. Today the property has an amazingly diverse ecosystem with prairie, wetlands, forest and lakes.

The first mile is a crushed limestone road with a gentle rise. when you leave the road for the loop around the campground you'll be on a singletrack trail that is well kept and fairly even. When you leave the camping area there is a 160' rise that brings you to a beautiful overlook of the valley. the next mile takes you along a narrow, well marked, nature trail with a bridge halfway to the lake. you'll emerge onto a grass trail that circles the lake. this is fairly even and well maintained.
