The picture refers to the Jeep Trail which follows the Mississquoi delta north along the riverside. The trail itself is straight and not so interesting, through forest and tall grass. But there is always a chance to see wildlife feeding along the shoreline. We saw white-tailed deer, wading blue heron, and osprey (the reserve has a special rehabilitation program for them.) Check in at the well maintained welcome center on Tabor rd. to get a map of the five trails offered in the park. They are very helpful.

A lovely afternoon nature walk that winds through creek and marshlands. It holds your attention because you are always turning corners and never know what wildlife you might come across. We saw dozens of turtles (painted) sunning themselves on fallen trees and some wading birds. Of the five trails offered at the reserve, this one was a favorite for its intimacy. Check in at the well maintained welcome center on Tabor rd. to get a trail map. They are very friendly and helpful to visitors.

Nice trail to walk with kids. Saw lots of turtles.

Flat gravel bike trail or old railroad bed that follows the river. 2nd part of the trail out to the estuary was closed and overgrown. Hot midday. No loop. Out and back. There are several trails in the missisquoi valley system. This listing is misleading as it only describes one of them.

this trail is very pretty. It is a nice walk that is very flat, but scenic. there is one area that has a lot of dragonflies in the summer. good for jogging strollers and kids of any age.
