Event Description
NOTE: The meeting location for this hike will be the Indian Creek High School parking lot in Trafalgar.  Look for CILTI signs to carpool to preserve. Subscribe to event updates using the Notify Me icon at the upper right.

DIRECTIONS:
From Trafalgar in southern Johnson County, take C.R. 300 W and turn right onto Roberts Road. Travel approximately one mile and the road becomes Hougham. The preserve is located on your left just before the mailbox at 3637 Hougham road. The trail begins just behind the gate in the parking lot.

The Division of Nature Preserves is teaming up with some of our partner organizations and land trusts to hold a series of hikes on nature preserves. The partner for this hike is the Central Indiana Land Trust

Register for the hike using the red registration icon at the top right.

This preserve is part of a large hardwood forest block important to migratory birds and nesting songbirds – this habitat is limited in central Indiana. The topography is rugged with steep slopes and is part of the northern extension of the Brown County Hills that spills over into Johnson County. The property contains high-quality examples of oak woodlands on ridges and slopes, as well as bottomland hardwood forest in creek valleys. A gift from the Dr. Laura Hare Charitable Trust made the purchase and ongoing maintenance of this preserve possible.
