Wildwood Preserve

Wildwood Preserve

Our Wildwood Preserve is now open to the public! The 51 acre nature preserve is nestled between I-65 and Shades Creek and is home to a variety of native wildflowers as well as marbled and spotted salamanders. The nature trail is approximately 0.5 miles long, one way, with a moderately difficult incline on the return leg. In the future, we plan to add additional trails and connect the preserve to Shades Creek Greenway, a popular section of the growing Red Rock Trail System.

Please visit Wildwood Preserve and share your photos and experiences with us! You can find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@freshwaterlandtrust).
