The blufftop trail at 1,193-acre Cumberland Marsh is a bird-watcher’s delight. The grassy islands and still waters of Holts Creek are a valuable stopover for migratory waterfowl traveling the Atlantic flyway and a year-round home for herons, egrets, and raptors. The level trails encircle a small pond and traverse a recovering forest. Note: As of this writing, some trails were closed for maintenance but were scheduled to reopen before publication.
