- Excellent viewing of herons
- gallinule.... many many more.
- Plenty of noisy people use it as a "fitness trail" on weekends.
Stunning views of some of the states common water birds. Still the best views I have had of Sora at this site and in good numbers. A reliable site to see the resident pair of Bobcats especially at dawn and dusk.
- great place for photography
- busy with loud tourists from 9am onwards especially weekends
- In addition to others' comments
- I would add that when we have been there in mid to late February there have been some excellent views of some of the larger birds nesting
- including chicks on the nests.
- Can be crowded on the boardwalks; if possible avoid weekends and "Presidents' Week"
- which is the nine-day period (Saturday through the following Sunday) that incorporates the Washington's Day federal holiday.
