Hidden Waters Preserve
The differences in elevation on this 90 acre site, as well as the varying wet conditions and diversity of vegetation make this Preserve unique. A continuous flow of water from the seepage slope supports an unusual slope forest and depression marsh at the bottom of the sink. Due to soil and moisture conditions, the mixed forest uplands contain several species of ferns normally found in wetlands. The property is included in the state-wide birding trail network and birders have recorded over 35 species during the winter months.
Activities: Birdwatching, Hiking. Fitness enthusiasts may also enjoy walking or running the steep trails.
