A lollipop trail explores the southern portion of the reasonably mature woods (beech, maple, shagbark hickory) protected by this 36-acre preserve. Parts of the path may be soggy and nearby homes are sometimes visible, but there is excellent spring wildflower variety and density, including long-spurred violet, bellwort, and hepatica.
