Natural Areas: Fox Fire Woods
This preserve is slated for closure by the end of 2024. See it while you can.
Fox Fire Woods is named for a mushroom that occurs here and glows faintly in the dark. Alas, the preserve closes at dusk. Eight acres with a nice long-stemmed lollipop trail through woods rich with oak, hickory, and maple. Healthy spring wildflower population, including mayapple, bloodroot, and toothwort.
Allen County. From I-69 Exit 317, go east 1.5 miles on Union Chapel Road, then north 3.0 miles on Tonkel Road, then east 2.0 miles on Hollopeter Road, then north 0.5 miles on Hull Road to the pull-off on the right.
