Trail Description

Reveler Conservation Area is a 100 acres parcel of land in the middle of the country. How quickly the world seems to disappeared once you start down the trail is a pleasant perk. The 3km looped trail itself is 1-2 person wide, and brings you through shrubed areas, open field, and treed. The trail is easy to follow although better markings for the link trails would be ideal. If there would be a theme for this hike it would be the abundance of butterflies and wildflowers. Plenty of bright yellow, white, pink and purples lining the trail before venturing into the forested area. f hiking the trail counter clockwise (recommended), the open meadow view once you emerge from the trees is quite nice. The tall grass around is a great spot to keep an eye out for bird life as there have been 100 recorded bird species. Point of interest is that this includes the eastern meadowlark, the bobolink, and the loggerhead shrike These three species are local endangered! There’s also a pond and a bench to rest along one the end of the trail if you are hiking counter clockwise.
