About Sharon Short Hills Preserve

Sharon Short Hills Preserve is operated by the Washtenaw County Parks & Recreation Commission and was purchased through the Natural Areas Preservation Program. This preserve features rolling hills and scenic vistas - just what you would expect to find at a preserve located in and named for the geographically-significant Sharon Short Hills. Elevations in the western portion of the property reach 1,060 feet, some of the highest in the County. There is more than 80 feet of elevation change throughout the property. The preserve is mostly wooded, and the quiet woods and wetlands are ideal for spotting woodpeckers, wild turkeys, and other birds. Trails meander throughout the property leading you to different ecosystems. From the hilltops, glimpses of neighboring farms highlight your visit to this rural corner of Washtenaw County.
