About Baker Woods Preserve

Baker Woods Preserve has a mixture of forests and meadows.  It is also home to the Chelsea District Library's Storybook Trail .  The Storybook Trail displays a children's book along a nature trail, allowing for an interesting experience for hiking and reading outdoors.  The Storybook trail is updated seasonally and is recommended for kids of all ages.  
Another attractive site nature feature is Mill Creek, which traverses the property from north to south. The creek banks are in good condition and the creek itself is well shaded by adjacent vegetation. The site has a varied topography with especially steep slopes along the course of the creek. A parking lot and trails for public access were constructed in 2014.
