VISITATION RULES AND TIPS
Park only in designated parking areas. Parking is limited, which protects nature and prevents overcrowding. If there is no room to park at the trailhead, please return to visit the preserve on another day.
Open hours: dawn to dusk unless noted otherwise.
Hunting is not allowed at our public preserves, except for limited hunting at Columbia Mine Preserve with a permit.
Hunting by special permission occurs at certain other preserves. Requests for permission to hunt are not being accepted at this time.
No camping, fires, off-road vehicles, bikes, or horses are allowed.
Always stay on the trails and do not disturb plants, animals, minerals, or historic artifacts.
Dogs are welcome but must be leashed at all times for the safety of wildlife, plants, your dog, and other people.
There are no restrooms, drinking fountains, or trash receptacles. Plan to take home any trash, including dog waste.
Be prepared for mosquitos as well as ticks, chiggers, and poison ivy, which can all be found along trails.
