A raised metal boardwalk that passes through spectacular old-growth forest.

Features Birding · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Open 6:00 a.m. to sunset.

Description

The trail will guide you over a swamp, giving ample opportunities for admiring state champion trees or for watching for prothonotary warblers. Our trip was taken during a dry summer, so much of the swamp had dried up. The trail is moderately used and is accessible to all.

Flora & Fauna

Prothonotary warbler, northern cardinal, common grackle, eastern cottontail.
