Rays Woods Nature Preserve

This was a very nice short hike on Sunday afternoon. This preserve is right behind a small group of homes nestled into the woods and surrounded by farm land. I enjoyed the abundant wild life like birds and deer and at least one hawk. Not one of them would pose for me however. This place looks so pristine until you see all of the trash that fellow geocachers gathered recently so it can be removed from the woods. They have done a great job cleaning up this area.

If not for the trail markers you would barely know that you were on a trail at times. The understory of ferns and other plants is so dense that at times you don't even see the ground you are walking on. I recommend that you bring a walking cane or a stick or walk with a heavy foot as you go through these areas because if you can't see the ground, what else can't you see?
