Gravel trail circling the 40-acre Perry Phillips Lake; good place to search for waterfowl, grebes and other waterbirds, especially in winter. Meadowlarks, mockingbirds and a variety of sparrow species are common.

Chat trail in good condition. I didn’t see many birds but it looks like if the conditions are right that this could be a very “birdy” trail.

Flat and easy. Great area to see birds and fish.
