In an urban locale where there is little nature exists, the prairie here provides a wonderful oasis where peace can be found.
- Wide expanse of prairie
- July: Impressive display of rattlesnake master, compass plant, mountain mint, and blazing star
Best Times to Visit:
- June through September for prairie wildflowers
Mike’s Thoughts: This is a great place to get involved by volunteering to restore the preserve.
Notes: Walk north across the field and to the “Kickapoo Prairie” along the paved bike path. As of July 16, 2018, there is no official trail. But, there are semblances of trails. From the sign, head north into the prairie and you’ll quickly find a faint worn trail continuing north. However, watch your first couple of steps because there’s a drop-off from the bike path. The Kickapoo Prairie sign is located at approximately this point on the map.
