As the largest park in the Three Rivers Park District, with more than 50 miles of trails available to hikers, Elm Creek Park Reserve is a place you can visit again and again without doing the same route twice. Stop in at Eastman Nature Center to check out the exhibits and wildlife observation deck before venturing out to hike the loops that ring the nature center. Eastman Nature Center serves as the hub of Elm Creek Park Reserve’s network of hiking trails, so that’s where you’ll begin. Before that, take a few minutes to explore the nature center. Its 14,000 square feet contain classrooms and reading rooms, professional exhibits where you can watch wildlife, and an open-air deck. With so many activities offered, the place is abuzz, particularly on weekends.
