With a rating of Moderate on AllTrails.com, the North Woods Nature Preserve features two Loop style trails, color-coded as Blue and Yellow. Although the trails are not handicap accessible they are both family and pet-friendly (pets must be leashed).
To begin, visitors travel along the Blue Trail, AKA the Reservoir Trail. At a distance of one mile, the Blue Trail takes visitors to the Old Round Lake Reservoir where they will cross over portions of the water on bridges built by local Boy Scout troops.
For those seeking a slightly longer experience, they can choose to split from the Blue Trail in preference of the Yellow Trail. Added in 2012 thanks to an Eagle Scout Candidate, Matthew McGuffy, the Yellow section – AKA the Forest Trail – adds approximately another miles to the loop, taking visitors deeper into the woods.
