The vegetation is lovely and varied. We went early in the morning hoping to see wildlife but we struck out... only saw a little frog and a few... More

Loved the preserve, went on the 9:00 hike with the ranger down to the lake. She was excellent, a beautiful easy to do trail, with a woodlands trail heading back. Go early, When we returned parking became a problem
