Grass lands, streams, and mature forests. A nice hike, not technical.Some of the grassy areas are narrow and quite tall so use proper tick precautions. A few muddy spots but the trails were well marked and well maintained in most areas.

An old farm implement abandoned at the edge of the forest.  I imagine this was likely used until it broke down and was left just off the fields.

A state wildlife management area, with decent walking and biking trails. Trails are well maintained and dry. Love coming here with my dog. There's a 100 acre man made marsh, forests meadows, streams and ponds. Lots of wildlife and plant life. A family of Bald Eagles has a nest at the center of the marsh.

Marsh overlook, great vantage point for seeing the Eagles nest to the south in the cluster of trees.

A man made berm and concrete dam to slow the flow of water and control the marsh size. This provides a great lookout point to the bulk of the marsh. From here I have observed Bullhead Fish, Minnows, tadpoles, frogs, Butterflys, Dragon Flys, Canadian Geese, Mallard Ducks, Red Wing Black Birds, Finches, Sparrows, Barn Swallows, Hawks, and Bald Eagles.
