Reviewed March 1, 2014

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.

“Enjoyed this free outing & 1.5 mile hike”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

There was still snow packed areas on the trail but it was easy to follow. Around the lake, path was clear and we were the only ones on the trail, except for the birds. Don't forget binoculars as there are many spots to sit and bird watch. Also saw a giant beaver dam. Can't beat the scenery.

Take the short walk to Wander Lake to check out some more bird life but be sure to bring the mosquito repellant!

“Next to Creammer Field wildlife refuge”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

We really enjoyed Wedgewood. This is a privately developed and owned refuge. The owner deserves a lot of credit for the investment. Nice place for a walk. Very scenic. Good photo opportunities.
