An elaborate and sometimes confusing network of trails explores old fields now grown up in grass, shrubs, and woods. Twinleaf occurs here, as do many other wildflowers, including prairie trillium, trout lily, and green dragon.

From the parking area, an elongated figure eight path heads northeast through second growth woods, eventually approaching a small tributary of the Little Salamonie River. Another path leads straight west from the parking area, hugging the southern property boundary, and then looping through an area of abandoned fields.
