Located at the northwest corner of the Big Sandy Creek Unit, the trail provides length options for hikers. The outermost loop is 5.4 miles. Two other loops are available, 4.5 and 3.3 miles respectively. The trail crosses a great variety of habitats including the Big Sandy Creek floodplain. Dense stands of large hardwood with sparse ground cover can be seen. You can see the reclamation of old pasture land being re-absorbed by nature too.

There are eight trails in the Preserve totaling more than 45 miles. The longest is 18 miles while the shortest is less than one quarter mile. A few of our trails are fully accessible. Please use caution during the summer months when temperatures and humidity readings are higher than normal. Hike only during the early morning or late afternoon hours.
