The Old Field Trail at Raccoon Creek State Park's Wildflower Reserve is an easy 0.8 mile one-way trail that runs along the northern section of the wildflower reserve and runs directly next to Raccoon Creek.

The trailhead can be found along the eastern portion of the Henrici Trail and at the eastern end of the Audubon Trail. Or you can pickup the western trailhead along the western portion of the Henrici Trail.

The trail can be muddy, especially during the Spring, but it's well worth the wildflowers. Some small portions of the trail can be a bit of a pain to get through as well with a couple of overgrown sections of thorns and brush, but the trails are generally very well maintained otherwise.

Wildflowers can be found along the trail generally after mid-April.

No dogs, biking, or even food along the wildflower reserve trails.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
