Tel Hy Nature Preserve


Tel Hy Nature Preserve offers trails and access to the Wabash River. One odd feature is the remarkable collection of outhouses in the southeastern corner of the property.


Trails

The trail system defies easy description. Head north and east across an open area; from the edge of the woods and beyond, the trail is essentially a short-stemmed lollipop with a couple of side loops.

If you turn right at the first junction inside the woods, you soon arrive at a vantage point overlooking the Wabash River. A set of about 80 steps descends to the river proper.

The west side of the loop winds its way through mature woods before returning to the entrance trail; this is where the side loops are.


Directions

Huntington County, southwest of Huntington. From the light at the intersection of Indiana 9 and 200N, proceed east 1.3 miles to a stop sign. Turn right (south) for 0.15 miles to 300W, then turn left and go 0.35 miles to a small sign pointing left up a one-lane blacktop road. Turn left and park along the drive.
