General Info

Elliott Woods, the north addition to Prairie Creek Park, is located at 3230 W. French Drive in Prairie Creek Indiana.

Its canopy of trees has all but eliminated under-story making visibility good for woodland recreational activities. At least 26 species of trees, eleven varieties of flowers, and nine species of wildlife have been counted. A nature trail, approximately 1.9 miles long, transverses these woods as they are a natural nature study area. Click here for a map.

My visit

This is my third visit to the Elliott Woods Nature Preserve this year. So far, I have visited in the winter, spring, and now summer. I will be returning in the fall! Tracy and Dexter accompanied me on this hike!

This woods is one of my favorite. It is full of beautiful trees and also wildflowers. The trail is usually very well maintained with gravel. I have been at Prairie Creek Park in the fall, but for some reason, I haven't been in Elliott Woods in the fall. I am looking forward to that hike!
