The 354 Baker Woods Preserve spans the upper reaches of the Indian River. The land is home to abundant wildlife, including black bear, trout, blue heron, and even the occasional passing moose. It includes extensive river and wetland habitats, a red pine plantation in transition, and native coniferous and hardwood forests.
Over 3 miles of trails extend throughout the Preserve and include access to an Indian River landing and canoe/kayak launch. The Preserve is open to hikers and cross country skiers daily from dawn to dusk.
