Ambler Flatwoods Nature Preserve

Search these large woods for small things. More than 40 rare Indiana plants are contained within the dense trees—salamanders hide under logs, migratory birds pass through the trees, and frogs chorus in the spring evenings. More than five miles of trails make this hike a game of I-Spy on your adventure through the thick forest.
