ACRES plans to close this preserve by the end of 2024. See it while you can.

A short trail skirts areas wet enough to support skunk cabbage in relatively young woods. Large mayapple patches and mosquitoes galore. Worth a stop if you’re in the area to see Robb Hidden Canyon but otherwise perhaps of limited interest.


Steuben County. From the intersection of IN 1 and IN 427, west 1.7 miles on Bellfontaine Road to Lane 101, then left 0.3 miles to the ACRES sign.
