5 Off-the-Beaten-Path Places in Hendricks County

1. Burnett Woods Nature Preserve

Where is it? 8264 E. County Road 100 South in Avon, Indiana.

Who’d love it: Hikers, families and those with a case of wildflower fever.

This 68-acre wooded nature preserve is the state’s only dedicated nature preserve and is managed by the Central Indiana Land Trust. This is a great place to take the kids on a hike and teach them about trees and wildflowers as it is preserved as an example of what once was common in this region and what our ancestors encountered when they arrived in Central Indiana. Afterward, stop for a bite to eat in  Avon. You’ll find a variety of family-friendly establishments, from pasta and pizza to a Japanese steakhouse.

Where can I park?: In back of the Light and Life Methodist Church
