The Other Side (Trevlac Bluffs Nature Preserve)

The Trevlac Bluffs Nature Preserve is divided in half by Beanblossom Creek, and each part has its own hiking trail. DSC 0789

There is no connection, because one side of the creek consists of a very steep and (for Indiana) pretty tall cliff. Most people will probably prefer the well maintained southern part where you get a decent hike with neat little sights like the shed up above, or the pond below.

I found the other side much more exciting. It is mostly wetland, and the trail is rather a maze of paths.

After heavy rainfall, finding a path to the creek is not trivial, but well worth the effort.

Just don’t do it on a sunny day.
