Oldfield Oaks is an excellent example of an intact, mature oak woodland, a natural wetland, and a restored prairie. With this diverse mix of ecosystems, the preserve is home to a variety of wildlife, from foxes to great horned owls to western chorus frogs. Wildlife conservation efforts such as amphibian monitoring and bird counts take place at the preserve. It’s a beautiful spot to enjoy spring wildflowers such as trout lilies, jack-in-the-pulpits, spring beauties, trillium and May apples, but it also puts on a spectacular show of color in the fall.
Oldfield Oaks has a 0.6-mile South Loop Trail and a 1.1-mile limestone North Loop Trail, which weaves through mature oak woodlands and restored prairie and has several switchbacks that offer uphill and downhill hiking.
Horseback riding is not allowed at Oldfield Oaks.
