Description

Saline County State Fish and Wildlife Area is a 1,270-acre site that is primarily used for recreational activities. Long before the first settlers appeared, the American Indians made salt obtained from their "Great Salt Springs." Although this was once the site where the Native American and others obtained their salt, there are no longer visible springs on the property. An 8-foot-tall bronze statue of the Shawnee Chief Tecumseh, stands near the trailhead for Eagle Mountain Crest Trail to commemorate the importance of the land. The site includes a 105-acre lake which adds to the usefulness of the area. Today visitors use the park as a hunting ground, picnicking site, camping ground, fishing and boating area and a hiking destination.

The four designated hiking trails are Lake, Cave Hill, River and Wildlife Nature Trail. There are also horse trails on the property that you may hike if you desire.
