Lots of good birding. Great practice for my telescoping lense. Got great shots of an osprey nesting. Okay, I got decent shots of a— well I took the pictures, didn’t I?!? My hands get shaky and I had trouble with the tripod latch! I digress. Trail was fun. Easy, but nice.

Beautiful trail saw deer, osprey, geese, several hawks and a rattlesnake. But once you leave the open fields about the halfway point and enter the woods the path was not cut. It contained very high weeds and grass.

This portion of the loop is adjacent to tons of more walking in the ANF. Some pretty good bass and pan fish - fishing in the ponds- but off the trail it can get a bit marshy. Flat and tight packed gravel for the majority of the trip. Mostly out in the wide open so no reprieve from the sun on those summer days. I haven't done it in the winter but books I have read says it can be very windy and snow can pile up on the trail. Because of all of the water there can be quite a few flying insects and the deer flies were pretty bad both time I have been there. Some opportunities for back country camping right on the trail as well.

This is a really enjoyable little loop trail. You circle the swamp area and have some really nice opportunities to see wildlife. We saw a ton of birds and evidence of beavers. The trail is relatively flat and not challenging. We return to this one about once a year and consider it a favorite.
