There actually are a few wild flowers in September. 2.5 miles of easy trails through trees, small meadows and forest. Gift shop has some great books and t-shirts. $6 ($4 seniors) to walk the preserve.

There is parking available on the site. If there isn't enough there is additional parking down the hill and they probably arrange for a shuttle. Enjoy! Beautiful spot for a wedding.
