    The 193-acre natural area stretches between the Antrim County Fairgrounds east to Burrel Road and features 1.5 miles of the designated blue ribbon trout stream and 3 miles of trails. The trails wind through a variety of habitat, including wetlands, cedar swamps, stands of hemlock, and riparian forest along the Cedar River, and a handful of interpretive signs explain many of them. Three trailheads provide access into the preserve with the Fairground Trailhead, a short walk for campers staying at nearby Craven Park Campground, being the most popular.
