Moraine Nature Preserve

Moraine Nature Preserve comprises nearly 500 acres and features a sprawling trail network. The best hiking is on the north side of 750 North, where the footpath winds its way through deep woods, crossing rolling topography to the west and flatter terrain to the east. Glacial ponds fill low areas, and wildflowers and spring migrants add color and joyous music to the tableau. Trails to the south of 750 North mostly skirt areas undergoing reforestation, though a stretch along a deep ravine features large trees. Leave the mowed loop under power lines to the west of the parking area for last.
