About the Raymond F. Goodrich PreserveFor a good hiking opportunity close to the city of Ann Arbor, the Goodrich Preserve is the perfect spot. The neighboring Horner Woods complex - used primarily by U of M for research, teaching and fieldwork - is dominated by old growth forest that grades from hilltop oak-hickory on the eastern Goodrich property to maple-mixed Hardwoods covering rich central valleys. Native shrubs, predominantly buttonbush, surround several small wetlands and fill a large swamp which separates much of the woodland from the M-14 freeway. The central portion of this forest, known for its outstanding spring wildflower displays, is preserved by U-M as a plant sanctuary.
