Great place to get away and see nature

Always a fun place to walk around and let the kids burn some energy. So many paths you can get lost. They have a small play area for kids. Great time

Lots of different trails. Quiet with nice benches and places that you can stop and sit and read or just enjoy the outdoors.

I think we've all had experiences that we get so stoked about we can't help but immediately share. Without a doubt the Louise Kreher Forest Ecology Preserve is one that I didn't want to hesitate very long to write and share in both words and pictures. Visualize outdoor classrooms, because that is what it primarily is. The preserves mission is... More

As parents of two toddlers, we were so excited to discover this hidden treasure a few minutes from downtown Auburn. There is no entry fee and it has great trails, a small lake with turtles, a small waterfall, bird watching areas, and best of all, an amazing playground! Our boys love to explore the trails, watch the turtles in the... More

I have been meaning to write this review for years. I have run many miles on these trails and have always loved every step. You can stick to the wide paths or get on the windy twisty root filled areas...all is great. There are gardens and meadows and a lake and a fantastic hill . What a wonderful place to... More

This is a wonderful local treasure used by both Auburn University students AND local schoolchildren. It is full of informative twists and turns in the trails as each is uniquely named for a particular animal, bird, or plant that abounds there. Toward the end there's even a brilliantly conceived outdoor playground for children that is enhanced NOT by modern playground... More

The nature trails are a hidden gem for the Auburn area. Only a few minutes drive north of downtown Auburn, this ecology preserve takes you in to the woods with easy, marked trails. For those of you who know about geocaching, this is a great place to find treasures.

I place is not too big, but there are lots of improvements. Lots of kids did their eagle scout projects there. There are lots of different trails. Rally nice place for a walk not far from town.

Just love going here at least once a week. Even on party days and days when special programs are walked, the trails remain a wonderful refuge. The pond is full of turtles. The deer are timid but will stop and watch you when you happen to catch sight of them in clearings and in the woods. Near the waterfall is... More
