This wooded and undeveloped nature preserve is located north of the Borough of Carlisle along the Conodoguinet Creek. It contains lightly-used trails and a wide variety of plants, including some rare species. 

A steep incline leads to the creek where the water is deep and fishing is permitted. At creek level, when the water level is low, the mouth of a limestone cave can be seen. The Borough of Carlisle discourages cave exploration. Cave explorers and swimmers do so at their own risk. Boaters may use the area as a take-out for kayaks or canoes. Please be aware that the trail from the creek to the road is rugged and steep—not an easy take-out for watercraft.
