The Bailey-Lagerstrom Preserve is one of LTC’s largest, most wild, and remote nature preserves. Located within the St. Mary’s River migration corridor, its pristine wetland and shoreline habitats make it important for migratory birds and wildlife.
Despite its remoteness and lack of “traditional” trails, this preserve is relatively easy to access. From the parking area, hike on an old road. If you make it beyond the pond, the road curves to the left near the shore, and you can cut west through the woods to the rocky Lake Nicolet shoreline, or continue walking south on the old road.
