Bob Klawitter Lake Lemon Woods

This preserve protects a steep, wooded hillside on the north side of Lake Lemon. When the leaves are down, you can glimpse the lake through the trees. Parking is limited to the north shoulder of Wildwood Drive; there is room to pull off near the trail entrance.

The preserve was renamed in honor of the late Indiana environmental activist Bob Klawitter in 2019. Read more about Bob’s legacy and the naming ceremony.
