In the center of the Indian Summer neighborhood in Olympia, WA is a 36-acre nature preserve. A walking trail runs through this wooded sanctuary. Trail entrance points are at the clubhouse and on Prestwick Lane.
While you meander along this ½ mile trail, you’ll see lots of wildlife, including many different species of birds that make this preserve their home. You may also encounter deer, rabbits and squirrels.
Because this preserve hasn’t been logged for over 100 years, some of the trees you’ll find are a century old. You’ll find towering Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir trees as well as Washington’s state tree, the Western Hemlock, plus maple and alder trees.
This lush canopy of trees provides a cool respite on hot summer days. But the winter gives way to views of the lake and the golf course as you wind your way along the trail.
The preserve is owned and maintained by the Indian Summer Homeowner’s Association for the enjoyment of Indian Summer residents.
