Bird watchingGreat!

Nice walk with lots of wildlife! The trails are relatively flat and very well maintained. There isn't a ton of parking- both lots were full when I left.

Beautiful day for a hike here. Saw huge flock of scaup (ducks with blue bills) floating in the pond. Forgot to start recording at beginning of hike.

This is an amazing place! Saw 4 deer, Greater Scaup, Downy woodpeckers, cardinals, chipmunks, and more! It is always an adventure here. Don’t rush through, be present and enjoy!

Bird watchingGreat!

Pros: This trail is well kept, wide enough for a family, full of wildlife to spot and kid friendly. Cons: Not a fishing or hunting area, and is sometimes moderately trafficked on nice days. About: This area is a prime spot for birdwatching, and many sea birds congregate near the points. Also, on the inland field, it is possible to see many somgbirds and even raptors.

One of my all time favorites, can see waterfowl year round, and deer spring through fall, trails are well marked

the first mile thru the campground was confusing. there were no yellow blazes near the Ledges. otherwise pleased. a little too much street walking for a wilderness trip.

Neat trail, but a lot of it is in full sun. We weren't prepared for that and got pretty warm. We saw some migratory birds from far away and a couple turtles and frogs. Also, we saw some fall flowers.
