This 54-acre nature preserve along theĀ Conodoguinet Creek serves as a natural habitat. It features meadows and wetlands and provides creek access for kayaking or fishing. The ponds are also available for fishing. There is an almost 2-mile outer loop trail or a shorter one-mile inner loop trail, with easily identified trail markers, for walking, hiking and biking.
