Although this hike is short in both time and distance, it is definitely worth checking out. Carpenter’s Woods is an easy afternoon stroll. It is a popular spot for folks walking their dogs. And, as it is a haven for migrating birds, the National Audubon Society has deemed it an Important Bird Area. According to area bird enthusiasts, spring is the peak birding season here, when you have the best chance of spotting migrating birds, particularly warblers. The starting point of this hike is also the best place to start for birding, and the best time is right after sunrise.
