About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Roughly four miles of trails wind through 210 acres of wetlands, riparian forests, maple sugarbush, tallgrass prairies and oak savannas at Indian Creek Nature Center.

Indian Creek Nature Center’s campus trail system shown on this map is collectively called the Cedar Greenbelt Trail. The Cedar Greenbelt Trail was designated a National Recreation Trail in 1980 by the National Park Service. It’s divided into three sections, each encompassing sections of our woodlands, wetlands and prairie. The Cedar Greenbelt Trail is also a favorite of cross-country skiers, so no matter the season, you’ll enjoy beautiful scenery along this trail.

Nearby Vecny Woods has an additional 28 acres of massive hardwood trees stewarded by the Nature Center. Enjoy hiking, bird watching, cross-country skiing and fishing while you explore land in various stages of ecological restoration.
