Litchfield Nature Trail Description

The Litchfield Nature Trail meanders through scenic property owned by the City of Litchfield, in some places adjacent to the St. Joseph (St. Joe) River. At one point, the trail passes through Firemen's Park, which has primitive restrooms, playground equipment and fishing piers. About 0.5 mile of the trail lies on an abandoned rail line close to downtown Litchfield.

The trail's terrain varies between wetlands, ponds, closed and recovering municipal lagoons, residential areas and older growth woodlands. At the southern end of the trail, there is a small lake. There are several benches along the way.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the southern end of the trail in Miracle Mile Park on Homer Road/State Route 99. Additional parking can be found at Firemen's Park on S. Chicago Street/SR 49.
