Walk quietly and you may see a deer, mink or osprey within the peaceful floodplain forest. Great blue herons wade along the shoreline looking to snack on fish, frogs, and tadpoles. Watch your step—and save a leopard frog!
The Jeep Trail is only open August through April in order to protect nesting bird habitat.
