Wear bug spray, walking shoes, read signs along the path & telephoto lens would be great from the viewing platforms.

Very nice stroll around a large reserve with various birds and other wild life. The trail is easy for anyone to walk, the pace is peaceful or whatever you want to make it.

Well maintained trails and lake. Saw a beaver dam by the lake. Nice scenery and woods are nice. WARNING - mosquitoes are in plenty. this was one place we forgot our bug spray and we ended up donating blood to the wrong species.

Meets up with creamers field to give you more hiking options, Leads out from the Wedgewood Resort. Benches available in the summer, and great for snowshoeing in the winter.

A really great walk around the area including a lake/pond full of waterfowl. Good way to spend an afternoon walk.
