Walk any of the trails in Turnbull but be sure to also stop for the various view points such as this one. So diverse in this area and if you're quiet and lucky, you can see some wildlife!

One of my favorite parts of Turnbull. My kids and I always enjoy this area. Watched a porcupine climb a nearby tree one visit at this spot.

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".

First to Review

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.
