Hiking alongside water makes an outing special, and Borderland State Park has no fewer than six ponds to explore. Add to that the combination of flat hayfields or the option to test your legs on hilly, rocky terrain, and Borderland has something for everyone. Wildlife also find Borderland to their liking; deer, fox, raccoon, and otter are just some of the mammals that live here. Park Supervisor Bob Babineau said that “it seems the deer are increasing—we see them in the fields in the early evening.” He added that the park is a good place to view migratory birds: “Sometimes we even see osprey by the ponds.” The ponds are shallow, but they hold such warm-water fish species as largemouth bass and pickerel. Highlights: Ponds, fields, forest.
