We couldn't pick one! Walk under towering pines and oaks, pass by spring-fed ponds, paint a natured-inspired picture, learn about rock formation, or just take in the natural landscape of this 146-acre preserve. There are three miles of trails in multiple loops throughout the preserve so it's a great spot to get outside for a short respite or take your time and do all the trails at once. The Nature Center houses live native animals and environmental displays. A wheelchair-accessible path leads to the center, butterfly garden and adjacent native plants trail.
