Named for the scarlet oak trees that display brilliant red fall colors, this preserve protects a mature open forest near the Morgan-Monroe State Forest. A short trail follows a ridge that runs the length of the property, with a deep valley to the west. Owned by Sycamore Land Trust, Scarlet Oak Woods is open from dawn until dusk for outdoor recreation activities like hiking, birding, bird watching, wildlife observation, and nature photography.
