Welcome to the Trexler Nature Preserve,
a magical place in Lehigh County where visitors can hike, bike, ride horses, cross country ski, fish from the well stocked waters of the Jordan Creek , or just view nature. A popular destination for families, the 1,108 acre expanse was founded by General Harry Trexler as a way to protect endangered bison and elk at the turn of the 20th Century.
Today, visitors can glimpse these incredible animals in their natural habitat. The North, South, and Central ranges feature unique landscapes, from meadows and hills to hemlock forests and deep ravines.
Located in the Central Range is the Lehigh Valley Zoo, a perfect complement to a day of adventure at the Preserve. There is always a new discovery across the creek's ford.
We hope that you and your family enjoy your time at the Trexler Nature Preserve and return soon.
