Sanctuary Oaks

Indiana Natural Areas: Sullivan County

Sanctuary Oaks Interior

Sanctuary Oaks Interior

Sanctuary Oaks preserves 14 acres of mature woods that contain many species of trees. Getting past the surrounding belt of thick vegetation into the forest can be a challenge. Once inside, however, the understory is somewhat open and it is relatively easy to get around, despite the lack of an established trail. Your greatest challenge may be dealing with the spider webs and patches of poison ivy. There are few nearby houses and sparse road traffic, which means you are likely to hear little but birds, insects, and the wind moving through the trees.
