Crown Hill Lake Loop Professional Review and Guide
"A paved, accessible trail circles a pretty lake in a city park that has been designated a national urban wildlife refuge. On a lunch break, after the kids are dropped at school, in the hour before dinner, right before sunset—there’s always time for a turn around Crown Hill Lake.
That’s not all that recommends this urban park. The lake loop is also fully accessible. And It’s part of a protected wildlife refuge, so chances are better than excellent that the bird watching, in particular, will be great. Birds, including red-winged blackbirds, killdeer, and the ubiquitous Canada geese, as well as coyotes, voles, foxes, and squirrels, may be sighted along the trail.
The wildlife sanctuary is closed from Mar 1 to June 30 to protect nesting birds."
