Birding Focus: We'll look for summer breeding birds. The site consists of open water, wetlands, and woodlands. Herons and egrets are often seen here. The site is also very good for woodpeckers. The trail is either paved or dirt and mostly gentle terrain. Waterproof shoes or boots are recommended if it has recently rained. Insect repellent is recommended. There are no restrooms so be sure to prepare ahead of time.
