Lord Stirling Park Trails Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Children are often reluctant to walk one step farther when they get to the start of this trail. They’d much rather admire the antics of the Canada geese in man-made Branta Pond. Who can blame them? The beauty and constant honking of these creatures is exhilarating.
However, there are many more treasures to be found on these easy, level trails within the 400 acres of Lord Stirling Park. Deer, meadow voles, and rabbits are frequent visitors. This trail is a pleasant warm-up for the more interesting things to come. A magnifying glass is helpful for examining insect-eating plants in the boggy area, one of five major plant communities in the park. If you love birds, bring binoculars; you’ll probably also spot deer, pheasants, raccoons, skunks, opossum, and sometimes fox."
