This privately owned nature preserve, sometimes called Lloyd Woods, is essentially an outdoor classroom complete with programs. The trails here are open to the public from dawn to dusk. For this hike, the last of the year, we made a short loop starting from the main parking area. We first followed the yellow blazed trail as it looped around to the trail. Here we turned right and followed it the blue blazed loop. Turning right here we would follow the blue blazes almost the rest of the way making a couple of detours to the waterfront via spur trails. The spurs offer sweeping views of the Slocum River and a beautiful pier. Along the way you will come upon an outdoor pavilion as well. After climbing up the hill we veered slight left through a raptor zone along the green trail then right onto the blue trail once again following to the access road. From here we followed the road back to the parking area. There are several more miles of trails to explore here.
