How to Get There

Weiler-Leopold Reserve is in Warren County on the NW side of the Wabash River, about 15 miles west of West Lafayette.  To avoid the traffic congestion from the Feast of the Hunters Moon which is also being held on this day, take this route.  From West Lafayette, take State Road 26 west of Purdue campus about 9 miles to County Line Road.  Turn left on County Line Road and go south 2 miles to County Road 700 N.  Turn right (west) on County Road 700 N and go about a mile to the village of Greenhill. You will know you are approaching Greenhill when the road makes a 90-degree left/south turn and, one city block later, a 90-degree right/west turn. Instead of entering Greenhill, turn left/south onto Warren County Road 1125 East. Follow the blacktop road, known locally as the “Greenhill-Independence Road”, for 4.3 miles as it proceeds south and west to the parking lot in the northeast corner of the property, which is marked with a large sign identifying the Reserve.

If you are coming from Indianapolis or southern Indiana, take I-74 west to the US 41 exit, then north on US 41 about 11 miles to Attica.  At downtown Attica take Perry St. (County Road 1400 N) right and go east out of Attica about 5 miles to County Road 500 E.  Turn left (north) on County Road 500 E and cross the Wabash River.  Just after crossing the river turn right on the Greenhill-Independence road.  Follow the Greenhill-Independence Road east from Independence along the north bank of the Wabash River 6 miles to the parking lot.

The coordinates for the parking lot are: N 40° 21.542′ – W 87° 06.968′.
