 BeeTree Preserve is a tremendous natural resource and diverse habitat with grassy fields, wooded hillsides, mature forests, new growth woodlands, and valuable wetland areas.  You will find many examples of indigenous wildlife species and native vegetation.  Several main areas have been designated for their unique natural features, their accessibility, and their types of use.

BEETREE CEMETERY • A serene natural setting, reserved for members of Towson Presbyterian Church and their families.  A scenic hiking trail links the cemetery to the rest of the Preserve.

DAVIS PAVILION •  Large covered pavilion with central fireplace, charcoal grills, and picnic tables.  Easy access to restrooms, trails, and playing fields.  Limited parking and tenting areas are available.

KITTLE PAVILION •  Favorite picnic and camping site with covered pavillion, picnic tables, charcoal grills, large fire pit and scenic overlook of field and stream.  Many good tenting sites, ample parking, running water and modern facilities, as well as easy access to hiking/ biking trails. 

ALT HOUSE RESTROOMS •  Equipped with separate modern facilities for men and women.

SOLDIERS RIDGE •  Old growth forest of oak accessible primarily by relatively steep walking trail from Bee Tree Road and the Torrey C. Brown Trail.  Limited vehicle access is permitted for dropping off supplies.  Four Adirondack style shelters with 8 to 10 bunks each, a privy, and fire pits are available.  There is no running water so be sure to bring adequate supplies.

OAK RIDGE •  New growth forest of maple, oak and poplar, accessible by walking trails only.  The campsite includes five designated tenting areas, central fire pit, and flagpole for troop colors.  No motor vehicles access or running water makes this relatively remote location a more advanced camping site.

HICKORY PASS •  The northernmost section, accessible by walking trails only.  A mostly undisturbed mature forest of oak and hickory.  The lack of human impact and the quality of the forest makes this area a great place for nature study and bird watching.
