Named for the ring of beer cans marking a secret birding hotspot, the trail takes you along the bluff of the North Pool to rarely seen areas of Chautauqua National Wildlife Refuge. A reduced understory makes this hike perfect for viewing migratory song-birds. It forms a loop with Chautauqua Beach Trail.
