Kern Woodland Preserve protects about 150 acres; the Tippecanoe River forms its southern boundary. Paths follow old lanes through woods, past a pond, and along the river. There are homes along the north bank of the Tippecanoe, which detracts somewhat from the “wild” aspect. Closed Oct 15-Jan 15 for hunting.
