Description
Waypoints (0)

This is a short, easily navigated trail that offers impressive views of waterfowl impoundments. The path quickly leads to a roofed observation deck, where hikers can experience a wide view of the moist-soil impoundments. Refuge staff manage the water levels here to create a haven for migratory birds. Spring and summer months bring wading birds, while fall marks the arrival of several species of ducks.

Really cool place. The diversity of sounds is maxing. Boardwalk is in really bad shape and there is caution tape the appears to have bin cut, so probably intended to Be closed
