“A 4.2 mile trail through forest, open meadow, farmland and wetlands on a natural preserve.”— Mae Axelrod
Open to Equestrians if conditions are not muddy. Note that riders may not bring horse trailers to the preserve.
Be aware that while the preserve is open to leashed dogs, portions of the Red Loop are not open to dogs due to safety issues.
The terrain takes you through sunny open meadows and into forests with views of farmland, including a scenic overlook of the preserve. The trail is well marked with color coded signs and connects back up with the Yellow Loop and other trails if you want to take shortcuts back to the parking lot.
Meadows filled with native grasses such as purpletop, switchgrass, and big bluestem, and wildflowers such as ironweed, goldenrod, and milkweed. The preserve also hosts agricultural fields of soybeans and corn, as well as hayfields.
A variety of birds live on or migrate through Stroud Preserve including the Eastern Meadowlark, Bobolink, and Field Sparrow.
