History

The Pomeroy McMichaels Creek Nature Preserve, named in recognition of the 3 generations of the Pomeroy family who owned this property, is a 70+ acre piece of land containing a pristine section of the McMichaels Creek in Hamilton Township.  Located on Hickory Valley Road just west of Glenbrook Golf Course and Hickory Valley Park, this preserved property extends the "Glen to Glen" greenway (Glen Park to Glenbrook Golf Course) into the McMichaels Creek valley. 

The Pomeroy Preserve is part of a geologic ecotone, which is a transition zone between two different plant communities. In addition to the beautiful rock formations, expect to see uncommon wildflowers at this location in spring.
