Roberts Creek State Preserve is located in the Paleozoic Plateau landform region and contains a forested slope populated by the nationally threatened species, northern wild monkshood. The slopes of the preserve have features like limestone outcrops, sinkholes and springs. Also occupying the forest are species like sugar maple, red oak, and paper and yellow birch. The understory is comprised of plants like elderberry and blue beech. Spring wildflowers include bloodroot, spring beauty, wild ginger and Jacob's ladder. Summertime brings blooms like sarsaparilla, shinleaf and harebell. August ends the floral display with fall coralroot orchid and arrow-leaved aster.
In 1987, the land was purchased and in 1990 became a biological and geological state preserve. It is unaccessible to the public.
