Clifftop opens new Storment Hauss Nature Preserve hiking trail

NEW HIKING TRAIL–Clifftop is opening to the public this weekend the hiking trail at the Storment Hauss Nature Preserve. Pictured is just a sample of what visitors can view while hiking along the trail.

Clifftop is pleased to announce the public opening of the Storment Hauss Nature Preserve hiking trail on Oct. 30.

Clifftop acquired the 84 acre Storment Hauss Nature Preserve, 3326 Reed Road, in rural southeastern Monroe County from the estate of the late David Storment in October 2020. This acquisition was made possible through a generous grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation.
