Birding
Birdwatchers can enjoy spotting a variety of species, including warblers and woodpeckers. The park's diverse habitats attract many birds throughout the year. Raptors such as hawks are common sights in winter months while spring brings migratory songbirds like orioles and thrushes. Fall migration also offers excellent birding opportunities with large numbers of waterfowl passing through.
Trails
There are six miles of marked hiking trails developed at this time. These trails offer the opportunity to view woodland animals and birds that inhabit the park. The trails' scenic views also offer many chances for the photographers to sharpen their skills. More trails are planned with the park's development. Cross-country skiing and tobogganing are also available when weather permits.
