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

As Auburn residents, we like to visit the Louise Kreher Forest Ecology Preserve at least twice a week, and we follow a looping trail around the Preserve about 3 miles long. The trail is good for hiking all year. The trail involves some climbing up and down hills, especially around a small lake, and so I would rate it easy... More

We enjoyed hiking here while camping at nearby Chewacla State Park. Lots of trails criss-cross this beautiful nature preserve so you can hike as long or as little as you like. There is a beautiful spot called Hidden Falls that would be a great spot for a picnic.

The Preserve has a top-notch wilderness playground, tons of trails, abundant reptilian and amphibian life, educational programming, and even pretty rest rooms. You should go there now. Peace and quiet abound. Ms. Jen works her tail off to keep the place up. Ample parking. They even have story books in the tree house. My fave Sunday after Church trick is... More

Mike Wines gave an interesting show on reptile. He was engaging and patient with the children and kept the curious fingers out of danger. The youngsters learned about interesting creatures and even had the chance to pet some of the tamer ones.

We enjoyed a beautiful fall morning exploring the trails. Felt like we were tucked away. It was a great couple hours for my husband and I with our three girls ages 3 1/2 and 5. They have a little nature themed playground and restrooms which made it very convenient for us with kids.

What a great way to get out in to nature. There are many trails to choose from and all are worth going on. Don't miss the old cemetery that is reachable from the center. Great for the entire family as had many interests besides the scenery
