    Ideal for bird watchers, this simple trail just goes basically in a square around a meadow. There are a few benches throughout the trail. It is flat and very easy. (If you wanted to walk it in 15 minutes, you could easily.)

    The real attraction here though is the bird houses built in the meadow so you can birdwatch.

    After the meadow loop, try hiking up towards the education center (where you can stand on the balcony and bird watch till your heart's content) or hiking along the River Trail which is a bit more of a demanding hike. Be wary of rainy season as it is VERY muddy.
