Autrey Mill Trails
Autrey Mill has over 2.5 miles of trails through a hardwood forest. The trails wander past a scenic creek with rocky shoals, many spring seeps, mature trees, wildflowers, native plants, and a variety of animal life. There is plenty to explore with bridges, an overlook, a gold mine, foundation stones of the old mill, plus benches and pavilions.
The new Warsaw Trail and trail sections on the south side of the preserve were recently added to our trail network by Eagle Scouts. The Warsaw Trail starts to the right of the Warsaw Church and intersects the River Trail. The new trail sections on the south side of the preserve make a continuous trail loop from the road-side picnic shelter to the intersection of the River Trail and Forest Loop.
Visitors can listen to our cell phone audio tour to enhance their experience. The audio tour features information about our historic buildings and the preserve trails. These instructions are posted on the main kiosk at the parking lot.
