Lohmann Buck Twining Preserve

Trail. The trail starts straight ahead from the parking area and goes up the knoll, then turns right and shortly thereafter left again, down the hill to the Lieutenant River at the south end of the preserve. The trail follows the edge of the marsh north for about 1200 feet then heads up an obvious bowl like ravine to the top of the ridge, where it turns south toward the start, passing a 50 foot side path to a fantastic overlook to the west along the way.
