Glad we went. We enjoyed the couple miles of hiking trails. But honestly we saw way more wildflowers on the nearby canal tow-path than we saw in this preserve, and I don't think the canal path was even trying. We got a lot of interesting...More

We visited in September, and few flowers were blooming. But the woods were lovely, mostly quiet, and we enjoyed it immensely. I'd highly recommend it as a way to connect with nature, escaping briefly from city life. The Evergreen Trail is a little steep at...More

Sadly we did not get to take part in as much of our annual pass as we hoped, but the handful of times we went it was a great experience. Kids loved walking the trails.

Take day hikes on the many trails leading to a variety of habitats fulled with native wildflowers, ferns, shrubs and other plants. There something in bloom from April through October. Many plants are also interesting in winter.

The flowers are awesome, especially in the meadow. There are some great hiking trails. With the recent rains, some are a little more rocky, but still very walkable. The trails along the water are especially nice. Also like the pond trail.

If you want a beautiful, peaceful, magical nature walk in a healthy forest, near a pond and vast wildflower meadow, this is the one in Bucks county. What bloomed there this past June near a fern trail was the rare and going extinct yellow lady...More

Magestic place to get connected to nature and learn about native plants, ferns and flowers. Don't miss the pond near the exit and going down to the stream.

There is parking available on the site. If there isn't enough there is additional parking down the hill and they probably arrange for a shuttle. Enjoy! Beautiful spot for a wedding.
