The trails are a mixture of packed earth and rocky surfaces that have various elevation inclines throughout the area, and are used by hikers, mountain bikers, snowshoers, cross-country skiers, horseback riders, and snowmobilers.

The main trails consist of two loops, marked by blue and red blazes. Each loop is about 1.5 miles, and has wide, easy to traverse surfaces. ATVs are allowed on portions of these trails.

There are also two networks of “Technical Trail” in the northern part of the Preserve. These trails are more narrow and cover steeper, more difficult terrain. They are ideal for mountain biking and trail running, and are great for longer hikes as well.
