This short but superb trail is nestled in the remote, lake-filled region of northwestern Vermont—just a few miles from the Canadian border. Several wildlife refuges are nearby. As the trail begins, take note of the wetlands to the right of the trail, where you are likely to see at least one great blue heron. To the left are farmlands that yield to an expansive field of goldenrod, which gives way in turn to a marshy wetland. Before the 1.0-mile mark, the vista to the left will unfold into a magnificent wetland area known as the Mud Creek Waterfowl Area. This wildlife preserve is home to dozens of species of birds.
