Need to Know

Open seven days a week, dawn to dusk; check sign at entrance to park for specific closing time. Ticks are present here and there are biting flies during part of the summer.

Runner Notes

There can be very muddy parts along the trail after a heavy rain. Part of trail is wood chips that can become saturated with water. Both the mud and the wood chips can cause your foot to sink three or more inches down.

Description

The trail is clearly marked with blue and white blazes. It is accessed via the Island Trail (Blue). A bird observation blind is found at the southernmost part of the trail. There is also a view of Silver Bay from the northernmost part of this trail where waterfowl such as Ruddy Ducks and Buffleheads can be seen in late autumn and winter. Parts of this trail can become very wet and muddy; waterproof boots are recommended after a heavy rain.

Flora & Fauna

Nesting Ospreys can be seen here in the summer. Blue Jays, Carolina Chickadees, Tufted Titmouses, Dark-eyed Juncos, sparrows, woodpeckers, and waterfowl can also be seen from this trail.
