Description

This most-popular trail is just north of the historic ranch house and is very convenient for those visitors wishing to run only a short distance or who have a limited time for their visit. Encompassing an overlook, several exposed limestone formations, a riparian area, and some of the tallest grass around; it's a microcosm of the entire preserve and can give visitors a good feeling for the prairie.

This route begins at the parking lot for the Lower Fox Creek School, but the loop can also be accessed from the south if you prefer to park at the visitors center. Grab a map there and head up the gravel road, past the old ranch house there are two trails that will take you to the loop.
