Description

The Heinricy property is a typical example of the short grass prairie and wetland vegetation habitat combination and is in a crucial location between increasing development pressure and a state park. It has a popular, paved trail that connects the City of Loveland trail system to the Boyd Lake State Parks trail system and as such it is an important addition to the county's regional trail line up. It is open to the public and is located just south of Boyd Lake. From Hwy 34 take Madison Ave. to N. CR 24 E. Take that all the way to Boyd Lake State Park.
