Pecan Basin / Cates-Clawson Reserve




Location:   Take State Road 32 east from Perrysville to Silver Island Road (the first road to the right). Follow the river south on this road for 1 1/2 miles to its intersection with Liberty Church Road, Pecan Basin's southern boundary. The lowlands are to your right, the uplands to your left. For GPS fanatics: N 40° 01.584' , W 87° 25.103'.

Description: 155 acres on the Wabash River. The are bottomland fields were reforested in partnership with Ducks Unlimited (see, hunters and tree-huggers can get along!) and the hill on the other side is worth a climb. The lower trail is very easy. Pecans don't grow in Indiana.
