Visit ACRES Cedar Creek preserve trails

The majority of ACRES’ privately-owned properties are closed to the public for their protection, keeping our nonprofit’s resources aligned with our mission to protect land, forever. You can explore trails through multiple preserves within Cedar Creek that are representative of this unique place and that offer the most scenic and engaging hikes.

Nothing speaks more clearly about the value of a natural area than your own direct experience. From this, you can infer the value of protecting places. We offer trails to engage you in our work.

Enjoy the trails ACRES members make available. And then, join us. The ACRES mission is big. Protecting, restoring and managing local land forever requires focus, commitment and renewing support from an ever-growing circle of people who value natural places.
