Hobart Urban Nature Preserve .
Hobart Urban Nature Preserve is located in the heart of Troy and has just over 2 miles of trail and over 80 acres of land. Visitors can be replenished and inspired by activities such as bird-watching, leisurely walks and observing nature while escaping the hustle and bustle of city life.
Visitors enter via a country lane that is flanked by oak trees and a waving prairie. A trail system leads you through open grasslands, beside a wetland and past four welded steel modernist sculptures that were donated from the collection of the Hobart Welding Institute. The sculptures are placed in distinct habitats to highlight the relationship between nature and art.
