Upper Herring Lake Preserve is a beautiful and diverse preserve that includes meadow, lake, pond, and marsh habitats. Visitors enjoy a long two-track trail meandering meadow and fallow field to a boardwalk that winds through a marsh and ponds thriving with life.
The preserve’s shoreline on Upper Herring Lake can only be accessed from the water. Kayakers can use a DNR boat launch off Herron road north of the preserve.
Certain types of hunting are allowed in accordance with state regulations:
