Distillery Road Conservation Area
PLEASE NOTE!!! The Distillery Road canoe launch is open, but the road leading to the launch is closed, so canoeists must portage their canoes to the launch area.
Distillery has areas located in the river bottoms, and has areas of hardwood savanna that include Red and White Oak, and Hickory trees.Distillery supports numerous grassland nesting birds, such as a population of Henslow’s Sparrows.Hikers and skiers can utilize the miles of trails which wind through the prairies, savanna, and wetlands.Canoeing enthusiasts can take advantage of the launch site, located at the end of Distillery Road.The launch provides easy access to the river.Due to their extremely close proximity, the combined sites of Anderson Woods, Distillery and Nelson’s Ford Conservation areas total more than 540 acres.
In most recent history, the area was used for agricultural purposes until the 1970’s when it was acquired by the Conservation District.
