A really nice, but seldom used trail in the beautiful glacial moraine.

Runner Notes

The trail is moderately rugged with some steep sections and exposed roots and rocks.

Description

The Moraine Nature Preserve is easy to access and has no entrance fee. There is ample parking in the gravel parking lot. The trail itself is a nice departure for the region. Unlike many other regional trails that are either flat or have a sandy running surface, this trail is never flat and has a hard-packed and rocky surface.

The preserve is part of the Valparaiso Moraine, which was formed by the last ice age. The nature preserve contains a combination of rolling ridges, steep hills, and ponds. The trail is surrounded by a beech-maple forest. There are excellent wildflowers in the spring and migrational birding in the spring and fall.
