Wildwood Prairie Trail

The Prairie Trail travels through a tall-grass prairie remnant and then into an upland wood that skirts a scenic ravine. In the prairie, grasses including Big and Little bluestem and Indian grass can be observed year-round. While Little bluestem is just knee-high, Indian grass and Big bluestem reach heights sometimes over 7 feet. A parade of butterfly species - some of which are rare - nectar the many colorful, sun-loving wildflowers from middle May through September. The upland woods section of this trail passes through what is one of the largest woodlands of its kind in Lucas County before returning to the Trailhead at the Metz Visitor Center.

Parking for this trail can be found at any of the parking lots at Wildwood Preserve.
