Mile Creek Preserve

Directions. The Mile Creek Preserve on Mile Creek Road ( 44 acres)  has a trailhead located next to the mailbox at 191 Mile Creek Road on the east side of the road, .2 miles west of Mile Creek School. A small parking area is very near the trailhead.

Map it?

Trail. The loop trail follows the stone wall about four hundred feet, then turns north along the edge of the marsh about three hundred feet where it turns to the right until it comes to the marshy area. There it turns north about four hundred feet. At this point the trail crosses the marsh and the small stream flowing through it to the other side where it heads south along the edge of the marsh for about three hundred yards, then it turns to the right across the stream back to the starting point. The loop is about a mile and the walk takes about an hour. The trail needs to be more clearly marked in certain places.
