Cedar Creek Timber & Wetland, formally known as Cedar Creek Timber, was originally a 105 acre public hunting area.
In 2005 the I.D.O.T. purchased 170 acres of Cedar Creek bottomland for a wetland mitigation site. Tiles were broken and dirt berms were constructed to enhance the wetland.
These two areas are now known as Cedar Creek Timber & Wetland.
The area is open to public hunting and has excellent populations of deer, turkey, squirrels and migratory waterfowl. See the Hunting page.

Hunters may not walk in from the parking lot at 32nd Street (Suburban Heights Road). Special rules and regulations pertaining to hunting have been posted at different locations on Cedar View Trail.
