Directions to the Ross Reserve

The Ross Biological Reserve is roughly 8 miles west of campus. The address is 451S on Country Road 875W, just south of Division Road, and between the Ravines golf course and the Ross Hills County Park, on the north bank of the Wabash in Tippecanoe County.

From West Lafayette:

  1. Take State Road 26 west (State Street), through the big intersection with Route 231.
  2. Turn left onto Newman road just after that intersection, and under the railroad underpass.
  3. Continue for about 1.5 miles to a "T" intersection with River Road at Fort Ouiatenon.
  4. Turn right (west).
  5. Continue past Granville bridge, up a hill, to the golf course (roughly 3 miles).
  6. The next road left (south), in the midst of the golf course, is County Road 875, with signs to Ross Hills.
  7. A quarter mile along this road, on the left, is the entrance to the Ross Reserve.

It is a cinder drive through a double gate, just past a brown wooden sign for the Reserve. If you make a right-angle turn on 875, to the county park entrance, you just missed it.
