The sanctuary is open to the public dawn to dusk only. Please be aware this is private property and respect for the rules is appreciated. These trails are only for hiking, not for running and no bikes. Very peaceful. Walk around this short loop to find yourself on wooden paths that will take you past several water bodies and through some beautiful woods where chickadees will readily land on your hand for bird feed that is available from dispensers on the trail. You'll also check out a cool rock grotto that children can explore around. Keep your eye out for turtles in the water!
Beautiful trails, my boyfriend and i were given bird seed by a little girl and her family, i had never fed birds out of my hand before, but you just sit on the boardwalk path seeds in your hand outstreched and those birds come right to you...amazing experience!!
Peaceful and wonderful place to view wildlife and a variety of landscapes
Great trail to take the kids for a walk and to see all kinds of wildlife!
Great trail, went on a drizzly day and it was worth getting our socks wet
