I often bike from the house to the Merkle Wildlife Sanctuary, 7 miles. It's an excellent viewing spot for migratory birds. They have an excellent wildlife center, geared toward students. more »
The sanctuary has three walking trails, ranging in distance from 1.2 to 3.0 miles. But they also have astronomy observation evenings monthly (when open) and activities for kids. Great place for either the family, a field trip, or even a solo walk!
