Description

The trail can be overgrown at times, so beware of ticks in the summer.

LaBaraque Creek Conservation Area lies at the heart of the LaBarque Creek watershed which includes Young Conservation area and Don Robinson State Park. The area consists of St. Peter Sandstone which has steep, narrow valleys, bluffs, sheltered caves and hardwood forests.

The permanent creek is known for its high-quality ecosystem which includes at least 54 species of fish. It is home to many migratory bird species including wood thrush, worm-eating warbler, ovenbird and Acadian flycatcher. The area is rich with over 500 species of native flora; deer and squirrel are abundant.
