This preserve is 160 acres of diverse terrain, including wetlands, meadow and woods. There is a radio tower on the south side of Cherry Hill that can be used for an orientation landmark while walking on the property. The bird population here is as diverse as the terrain, with a resident owl population as well as many wetland species, warblers, bluebirds, etc. The land encompasses rolling hills, wetlands, part of Flemming Creek, and meadows.
Take Plymouth Road east from Ann Arbor, passing over U.S. 23. Continue and drive a quarter mile past Dixboro Road to Cherry Hill Road. Turn right (south) and follow the curve to the left. You will soon be headed east again. Gale Road comes in as a "T" from your right. The westernmost edge of Cherry Hill Nature Preserve is then half a mile ahead on your left. The preserve continues for half a mile. Be careful you don't drive right on by the small pull-off parking area at the entrance to the preserve.
