Wedgewood Wildlife Sanctuary Reviews
Stayed at the Wedgewood Resort so it was walking distance to the Wildlife Sanctuary. I visited here in the winter so everything was covered by the snow. Even then, there are trails you are able to... more »
It's a nice place for a nature walk and birdwatching, close to town and in the safe area. It's an easy walk, kids and aged people will be comfortable here. more »
Beautiful, safe place to take a little stroll with family or even alone. The trails are made of compact rocks and are very well maintained. I went during the fall on a beautiful sunny day. I've never heard of a wheelchair safe trail, but on days like this you could definitely take a wheelchair if your heart desired. Unfortunately they do not allow dogs on the trail, but maybe you could dress your dog as grandma and cart him around in the wheelchair. I dunno. I loved the tons of signs telling all sorts of facts about the wildlife and there was never a moment where I feared I was lost or had to wonder how long the trail was. The only thing that gave me a little bit of a hard time was finding the trail entrance. When you enter the resort just stick to the main little road and follow the signs to the car museum entrance. You can park here. There is a little trail between the car museum and the woods that leads you directly to the trail head. The Wildlife Sanctuary was beautiful and relaxing and something I can see myself visiting very often. Hope you get a chance to enjoy it soon as well!
Nicely done trails. Very flat, short, and easy. Really neat blind for birdwatching. Really thick brush, so don't expect to see much of the lake. This is a wildlife sanctuary, so leaving the trail is completely off limits.
