Deep ravines divide beech/maple and oak/hickory forests on narrow ridge tops. Over 300 species of woody and herbaceous plants and 140 species of birds have been observed. Divided by Asher Creek and flanked by wetlands, the preserve includes three diverse ponds and three types of trails: paved; wide and flat earthen trails; and narrow, winding trails climbing steep grades.
Asherwood is great place for homemade maple syrup. It has a great variety of trails (some are paved in the woods!), restrooms, and an aviary with rescued raptors.
