Need to Know
As of 9/10/23:
Preserve and trail: Preserve is an old girl scout camp which has been converted to a nature preserve and wedding venue in 2014. Trails remain under further development with obvious signs of new maps being added throughout the preserve. Some old trail blazing exists as arrows on posts from the old girl scout camp, however, not all of these blazes are accurate for the current trails and routing. Recommend taking a picture of the new map by the lodge parking lot and following this GPS mapped route.
Parking and restrooms: Trailhead parking is available in the gravel lot next to the lodge with additional parking further into the preserve. Old pit restrooms exist through the park and along trails, however, no longer appear to be maintained and serviced.
Descend to the valley floor and cross over the stream. This trail will take you three tree house shelters, MacDonnell Lake, over the wetland boardwalk, through meadows, under the pines, past Myeerah pond, over the main driveway, back down to the valley floor, and through the woods.
Flora & Fauna
Monarch butterflies. Prairie, cedar, pine, creeks, lakes, wetland.
