A gift received from Byron Stellhorn in 1989. 47 acres with a 1.5 mile loop trail.

45.5 of the 47 acres have been dedicated through IDNR's Division of Nature Preserves.

Trails cross ravines and old fields to a spectacular high escarpment with views of meandering Cedar Creek below. Wood ducks, green heron and great blue heron frequent the marsh. Wildflowers include twinleaf, hepatica, dutchman's breeches, bloodroot and anemones. For a longer hike, continue upstream along the creek under I-69.
