Need to Know
Flush toilet facilities available from May 1 through mid-October. Drinking fountains available seasonally, as well. Preserve trails also extend from the west to the Village of Port Barrington at Center Street to join the Village's pathway system.
More than 3 miles of trails wind through woodlands, over two boardwalks and along the banks of the Fox River. Trails here are open to hikers, cyclists, and cross-country skiers.
Flora & Fauna
In some sections of the preserve, the hilly landscape is typical of southern Wisconsin's Kettle Moraine area. Unique to the site is a large rookery, home to great blue herons and egrets, and a fen that supports two state-listed plant species.
Fishing enthusiasts bring back up to 50" muskie, up to 30" walleye, and small and largemouth bass.
