Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge is lesser known than Montezuma an hour-plus East of Iroquois in Upstate New York. And this 1.3 boardwalk/well-kept dirt path is a gem. From the parking lot on Knowsville, you start on a boardwalk through woodland, down through a spruce forest and then out on a dike through marshland around a pond and back through the woods to the parking area. Footing is even and -- in our experience unusual -- a realistic destination and activity for people in wheelchairs. No steps or gaps in the path anywhere, and the land is nearly flat. The only slopes are very minor. Heard many birds singing all along the path. Saw and identified perhaps a quarter of what we heard. Definitely worth a trip back -- and soon. Take insect repellent. No restrooms, but port-o-toilet in park across the street when we were there. Port-o-toilets were not wheelchair accessible. Website mentions gravel path. The gravel is fine and packed, and would not make wheelchair travel difficult.
