HENDRICKSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Indiana’s newest nature preserve is a 68-acre tract in southwestern Indiana that features scenic ravines, sandstone outcrops and several waterfalls.

The Indiana Natural Resources Commission approved the Dilcher-Turner Canyon Forest Nature Preserve during its Tuesday meeting. The site is located in Greene County, west of Bloomington and a few miles south of the village of Hendricksville, and it contains on-site parking and 1.6 miles of moderate trails.

The preserve contains an upland forest with nearby scenic ravines featuring large sandstone outcrops, intermittent creeks and several waterfalls.

The preserve was donated and is owned by and under the administration of the Sycamore Land Trust.
