Hike and bike this 25-acre property along the Galena River Trail. This preserve extends from the Meeker Street footbridge into the preserve. The Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation maintains a mowed trail around its perimeter.

The eastern portion of this parcel contains hilly woodland and the western portion is a flood plain that offers water filtration, flood storage, game and non-game habitat, a prairie restoration and public open space in close proximity to the city of Galena.

Enjoy cleared picnic and fishing areas with benches and views of the Galena River as it passes through the property.
