This loop pieces together portions of the Umbrella Tree Trail
, the Big Oak Trail
, and the Dragonfly Pond Trail
for an easy loop that can readily be shortened or lengthened. All the trails in the park are well-marked with color-coded symbols and easy to follow. Reedy Creek Nature Preserve and the adjacent Reedy Creek Park have a combined network of trails, a Nature Center
and educational offerings, ponds and creeks, a playground, a disc golf course, sports fields, a dog park, and picnic areas and shelters.
Though it is primarily forested, there are many streams and small lakes in Reedy Creek Nature Preserve making it a fantastic place to spot many types of birds and other wildlife. The Reedy Creek Nature Center
has exhibits and living animals visitors can interact with. There are interpretive trails around the center for self-guided learning.
Fishing (with a license) is allowed in Dragonfly and Slider Ponds.
