A small parking area leads to a system of trails all with easy hiking. The 168-acre preserve has over 1/2 mile of frontage on Minnehaha Creek, a spring-fed trout stream that flows through the preserve on its way to Crooked Lake. A footbridge provides access to a loop on the far side of the creek. Hardwood forest is the dominant habitat, followed by cedar swamp, pine plantation, and meadow. Old two-tracks wind their way through the preserve as remnants of past logging days.
Access to the preserve is plowed in the winter. Trails are not groomed, but they are used quite regularly by school groups and neighbors.
