David T. on Jackson Bottom Wetlands Loop Trail
Nice area to see birds and go for a walk. Also a gazebo and little science center is available.
Early November in a year of unseasonably warm weather, my daughter and I didn't see many water fowl. They were still up north. We did see lots of critters. We crossed paths with squirrels, frogs, a rabbit and a snake. We also found several areas with an obscene amount of crickets. Nature's crunchy bird food. Yum!

Good trail overall but I wouldn't bring the stroller again. It's kinda hard to push in bark dust and gravel. Put the baby in a carrier. Would be great for family field trips.
This is a nice little getaway that's close to home. While this trail may lack some of the flash and jaw dropping splendor of some of the more popular trails, it makes up for it with a good relaxation factor. The trails all through the park are fairly flat and well maintained. I've seen ducks, Canadian Geese, great blue herons, and beavers out here at various times. During the summer the wetlands get a little dry though. Better to go in the Spring. All in all a nice casual little place to hang out for an hour or so and bird watch.
