Bath Nature Preserve
In 1997 and 1998, the 404-acre Bath Nature Preserve was purchased. This parcel of land consists of several environmental habitats--wetlands, woodlands, riparian, and old-field habitats. The trailhead was completed in July 2001. Sensitive and unique areas are protected by limiting intervention and access to maintain the ecological integrity of the wetlands and woodlands. The prairie, scrub/shrub, wetland meadows and forest require active management to re-establish integrity and health.
The Bath Nature Preserve has an entrance on Hickory Farm Lane at 4160 Ira Road. It provides parking for twenty cars and six vehicles with horse trailers, a one-stall handicapped accessible restroom, hitching post, bike rack, information kiosk and picnic area.
