Established in 2006, this wooded 2 acre preserve protects over 440 feet of Chippewa River frontage in the Hiawatha Hills subdivision in Deerfield Township, Isabella County. A short walking trail loops through the preserve and is used primarily local residents. Despite its small size, the preserve hosts abundant wildlife including deer and wild turkey. A small experimental deer exclosure shows what the forest floor could look like without their grazing.
The preserve is on the south side of Hiawatha Drive, about 1/4 mile west of the intersection with Meridian Road. Park along the south side of Hiawatha. The Hiawatha Hills and Meridian Road Preserves are nearby.
