The paths were clearly marked and the birds were abundant. It was a beautiful place to observe nature. There were people of various ages, but everyone seemed courteous to one another and respectful of the wildlife. It was a relaxing, peaceful place.

I'm from inland (up north) and I walked for five minutes and added 10 birds to my life list in less than 10 minutes. Unbelievable birding right from the trail.

Yes you can get to the trail by going out the back gate of the circle Bar B (south) then head west to catch the trail. About a mile I would guess
