Loblolly Marsh Nature Preserve is Indiana’s 250th dedicated nature preserve. Its 475 acres include marsh, forest, and prairie. The preserve is open to the public from dawn to dusk and features a tree identification trail, approximately 3.5 miles of easy walking trails, and a ¼ mile ADA handicapped-accessible trail with benches. The preserve is located 3 miles west of Bryant on Hwy 18, turn north on County Road 250W, and travel ½ mile to the parking lot: 8323N 250W, Bryant, IN 47326.

If visitors would like a more in-depth and personalized visit, a rent-a-naturalist program is available through the Limberlost State Historic Site. A Limberlost naturalist will walk with you along the trails and point out the plants and animals of the preserve and also describe the history of the land, including how Gene Stratton-Porter studied, wrote about, and photographed the area.
