The Abbey Nature Preserve is full of beautiful trees, plants, flowers and wildlife, providing excellent opportunities for bird-watching and hiking. Enter the forest and walk along trails that wind down toward the pond. A short walk will take you on a return trip up the sandy road and if you're looking for a longer stroll take the path that will take you across the dam along the outflow stream. A wooden walkway built across the pond connects with walking trails on both sides to complete a loop. The perfect place for families, friends and pets to take a walk through honeysuckles, greenery and almost ancient trees.
