Runner Notes

The short distance and chance of scaring wildlife make this an area better enjoyed at a leisurely pace.

Description

This half-mile trail is universally-accessible and provides individuals and groups with great waterfowl viewing opportunities. From the kiosk at the trailhead, learn about the refuge, habitats, and resident wildlife. There's also a nearby fishing platform.

Interpretive signs along the trail identify various wildlife and vegetation that can be observed in the area. At the end, a 200-foot boardwalk takes runners over a freshwater mash. To the south, an overlook provides views into the Creef Moist Soil Management area. Look for raptors, waterfowl, and other migratory birds.

Depending on the season, biting flies may be present. Insect repellent is recommended.

Flora & Fauna

Billy’s Ditch links this site directly with South Lake, so there is a constant supply of crappie, bluegill, and other freshwater fish. A state fishing license is required.
