Nice trails. Parking was easy. I was underwhelmed and disappointed because I expected to learn something. The Nice Lady at the desk showed me a few things like the bird ID and the bird sound app....both of which I have on my phone. So if you are in the area and want to walk a trail this is nice. If you are looking to learn about birds, you won't find anything extra by coming to this place. Go to their website. Take the online class about crows.. add the bird app to your phone. I rate those things a 5.

The Lab is closed but the trails at Sapsucker Woods are open. Easy trails, all very well maintained. You could bring children but the walks might be too long for those under 7-8 years old. In August be prepared for mosquitoes. Lots of parking and ituall free

We didn’t walk far because the day before had torrential rains so most of it was muddy, dark day and uncomfortable with so many bugs attacking..on a nice day, I’m sure it is great!

While the lab itself is closed to the public at the moment, the trails in Sapsucker Woods are open. The trails wind around a small lake and some wetlands hosting a large variety of birds and other wildlife. It was lovely walking through the shaded woods and hearing all the birds calling and singing. Its an excellent place for getting into nature and enjoying a "forest bath". The walkway is soft with mulch and there are benches throughout the trails for stopping to enjoy the environs. There are also several lookouts and walkways around the wetlands and lakes.

We finally made it to this large and well maintained nature area. There is a large free parking area. As noted in other reviews the building was closed. However, they was a map of trails posted . The area is free.
We walked one of the shorter loop trails; markers can be found along the way. The trail moved through several areas.
We saw and heard lots of birds including a swamp sparrow and several woodpeckers. We finally spotted a goose family.
In addition to the birds there were lots of spring wildflowers in bloom.Tthe area has some benches and observation areas.
Because this is a wildlife area no dogs are allowed.
It was a good day.

Stopped by to check out the Visitor Center but that was closed due to Covid so wasn't able to get the full experience

I did walk part of the nature trails by the pond and saw a few species of birds, sculptures, frogs and a turtle. I think my review might have been higher is Center was open but it is a nice place to view nature and art

Unfortunately, due to COVID, the lab itself was closed to visitors, but I was still able to enjoy the trails! They were very quiet and serene, and I was able to see a good amount of birds. It was a fun little hike to do during my stay in Ithaca, and I hope that the inside will be open when I return!

Even though the Visitor’s Center and Gift Shop are currently closed during COVID 19, we still enjoyed the various trails and habitats in Sapsucker Woods. The trails take you through different habitats that are home to many species of birds. The trails are very well maintained and even include some large sculptures. Don’t forget your binoculars and bug spray! This is a MUST SEE for all bird enthusiasts.

If you can find he Cornell Lab of Ornithology, it's a gem in the woods. Know your birds or learn about new ones. There are tours, and it's all educational fun. Visitors come here from all over the country, and are thrilled with the entire experience.
