Fish Creek Natural Area is a 70-acre preserve sitting on a bluff of the Mississippi River. The creek itself is not currently accessible from the preserve, but there are plans to create a trail alongside the creek it in the future which will somehow be reachable from the preserve. Speaking of trails, the trail in the preserve itself is asphalt and is a nearly-mile-long loop. It is not plowed in the winter so make sure you have your skis or snowshoes firmly on your feet if you go then. There is so much flora and fauna to be seen year round, including coyotes, raptors, and many kinds of flowers. It's a nice environmental getaway in the middle of your day.
