Description

For those with more time, try the unpaved Brown Trail loop within Deer Grove East. Start at the East parking lot, located on the north side of Dundee Road about a half-mile west of Hicks Road. Begin at the main entrance; this 2.9-mile loop will return you to your starting point.

The Brown Trail winds over bridges and through restored savannas, prairies and wetlands. In the spring, look for vernal (temporary) ponds, which support native amphibious species, among other wildlife.

Picnic shelters, comfort stations, and water are available at Deer Grove East. There are restaurant options east along Dundee Road, within two miles of the preserve.
