Cedar Bluff Nature Preserve features a 75-foot high limestone bluff and gnarled red cedars clinging to cliffs, Cedar Bluffs Nature Preserve provides a stunning display of species adaptation and survival in a harsh environment. At its eastern end, the bluff narrows and drops off into a rock-walled valley cut by a small tributary stream of Clear Creek. This canyon protects a lavish spring wildflower display and exhibits remarkable rock formations.
