Located just 400 feet from the Izaak Walton Huntington Chapter, the Pehkokia Woods trails offer 97 acres of free public hiking through gorgeous, wooded scenery. This preserve takes its name from the Miami word for “peace.” A small pond near the entrance mirrors surrounding trees and shrubs, giving you a feeling of peace just before you enter the forested area. Rolling upland woods are dominated by oak and hickory trees, with some maple, beech and black cherry. This upland forest is dissected by a number of 20-foot-deep ravines brought about by natural erosion. The mixture of wide and narrow trails makes this preserve a pleasure to hike.
