A trail and a boardwalk lead into the Swan Lake Nature Study Area and onto Swan Lake itself, where birds and hikers alike find a watery refuge in the desert. The two prongs of this tour of the Swan Lake Nature Study Area venture into vastly different environments, though that won’t be evident from the trailhead. Especially in dry years you’ll see nothing but high desert scrubland stretching to the north and west, with no hint that Swan Lake exists at all.
