Trail Creek Fen


Location: From the US 421 intersection with US 20 go east on 20 about 2.5 miles and turn right on Johnson Road. After about .4 mile, there is a gated drive on the left; the preserve is on the east side of the road. Please don't block the gate.

Description:  They say there's a raised graminoid fen here, among other things. I don't know when I've last seen a raised graminoid fen. There's a raised bog near the Ohio line, but it's on private property. Where was I? There's a lot of interesting plants here, and a pretty wide variety, too, so put on your list of raised graminoid fens to visit.
