Runner Notes

Some wet/muddy patches

Description

First, cross over a sturdy boardwalk over a small pond, which is often full of lily pads. Listen for bullfrogs, and maybe even see one or two. Then you'll get to a path junction where chickadees are often found. In the winter, they're hungry, so bring birdseed (available for sale at the outdoor centre). The rest of the trail is an easy and well-traveled route, with occasional muddy patches.
