By combining four separate, short loop trails, this hike offers a wide variety of terrain and scenery. The first two loops leave from the horse trailer parking lot and take you on an information station hike on the Treasure Tree Trail, followed by a scenic and hilly traverse of the neighboring Beechwood Trail. Next, you will need to shuttle your car to the western boundary of the preserve, where the Audubon Trail and Cattail Trail explore the shoreline of Mountain Island Lake. The Faylinn Village portion of the Audubon Trail is a favorite with children, since they are encouraged to build an allnatural fairy hut on their hike through the forest.
