Tutelo Birding Trail is a 2.2 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Clarksville, VA that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round.
This was the first trail we hiked in the park.
Park volunteer Jessica Lynn, a local high school student, and Matt Claybrook senior park ranger, have worked long and hard to bring about this self guided nature trail at Occoneechee State Park. While out hiking, have you ever wondered about what types of trees you are seeing along the way? Thanks to this new self-guided hike along the Tutelo Birding Trail, visitors to Occoneechee State Park can learn more about native trees in Southern Virginia. Even in winter when most of the trees are bare, there are still plenty of ways to identify the various species, such as leaves, bark, and seed pods. This is a pleasant wooded trail with a raised platform for bird watchers. The park rates this trail as intermediate but it is on the easy side of intermediate.
