Location: Stretches across three counties

Scenic Views: Historical making of the land as gigantic sheets of ice bore down on this area, creating wetlands, ponds and rivers, as well as hundreds of low, cigar-shaped hills called drumlins. Particularly in the western end of the trail. The wood-planked bridges provide great viewpoints for the wetlands, where a host of wildlife thrives. You may spot large sandhill cranes, graceful birds with bright red caps on their heads, or hear spring peepers and a chorus of frogs announcing their presence.
