  • This is a great little trail to get out in nature. Lots of birdwatchers and since this is a nature preserve, you’ll want to be cautious of your noise and pets. In general I’ve seen a variety of folks enjoying this space.
  • This is a privately ran nature preserve with no county or state funding. It is maintained by a very small group of volunteers. CSNP has some of the best birding inside the perimeter in al seasons but especially in Spring and Fall. The pond, (when not overrun by off-leash dogs despite the numerous signs) is host to an amazing array of migrating waterbirds from Black Crowned Night Herons to Wood Ducks to American Bitterns. The trails are all pretty level and there is no way to get ost. The oval is 1.1 miles of easy hiking for the family. The nonprofit that runs it is especially sensitive to trash, off leash dogs and loud noises as this is a nature preserve, not a public park or dog park.
