Pass by a remnant prairie on the Nature Center Trail and then follow the Farm Trail Loop that leads past early twentieth-century buildings from the Kleb homestead. The Wetlands Trail goes through woods containing loblolly pine, eastern red cedar, live oak, and other hardwoods. A boardwalk crosses patches of wetlands. Watch for animals and snakes. Several ponds and an old windmill add additional interest to the hike. Start at the Nature Center Trail trailhead on the south side of the parking area. In 2009 there was little trail signage, but there are ongoing projects to develop signage and construct more boardwalks. Use insect repellant to discourage the mosquitoes and other pesky insects, and apply sunscreen because the tree canopy and shade are intermittent.The Nature Center Trail is a 10-foot-wide gravel road leading to the Nature Center.
