Our hotel host recommended this, which we appreciated. Walk from town on fairly busy road, but doable. Scenic area, waterfall, old mill stone dam interesting. Not much wildlife, especially for a bird sanctuary, and a trail map would have been helpful. Plenty of apples on the ground, though. Just when we were about to turn back after a good ways... More

Our walk lasted about an hour through thick woods, some grown up fields with grass paths, out to a stream. Lovely area. There are picnic tables and toilet facilities.

We were looking forward to a nice hike around the sanctuary. Unfortunately, it seems so few people visit, the trails are mostly grown over, with vines, sticker branches and poison ivy everywhere. We hike so we are not babies. This place could be really nice with a little TLC and trail maintenance.
