The 23,000 acres of the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area offer some of the best wetlands viewing of birds and other wildlife close to the Twin Cities. More than 275 species of migratory and resident birds inhabit or visit the area. The land area is made up of about two-thirds marsh and wetland and onethird hardwood trees, oak savannas, and grasslands. There are two major units in the Wildlife Management Area; this hike is in the southern unit and uses the roadway around the protected and restricted area of the actual wildlife sanctuary. The northern unit, Sunrise, has a few trails as well, most of which are spurs off the roadways that run through that unit.

Very pleasant to bike or hike. The paved trail is an easy 3.36 miles along a golf course and through woods and fields.
