This doesn't really qualify as a hike, but it's a quick boardwalk stroll over part of the marshes of Black Horse Lake to a viewing area. There were plenty of waterfowl to be seen in early April. This is an excellent choice for those with limited mobility or toddlers. There is also a vault toilet at the "trailhead".

This is an excellent place to spot water birds. Blackhorse Lake Boardwalk, not to be confused with Blackhorse Lake Hiking Trail - which is on the opposite side of the lake, is a short, paved trail to some viewing platforms. It is wheelchair accessible, and has a restroom and parking area at the trailhead.
