Description

Roosevelt Island is a haven for many species of bird. Birders will find habitat for wading birds, raptors, and warblers. Wildflowers put on a spectacular show in spring and early summer. This viewpoint is a great place to take in the views and scout birds.

Short Run: Cross the bridge from the parking lot and turn right onto the Swamp Trail. Follow it as it rounds the south side of the island and look for the overlook spur on the left side of the trail.
