This is a pleasant route around the wildlife area along the Toussaint River before it lets out into Lake Erie.

Posted on the sign at the parking lot; "This area closed to all activity other than hunting, fishing and trapping from 8:00PM to 6:00 AM September 1 - May 1 AND 10:00 PM to 6:00 AM May 2 - August 31st."

AKA, no night hikes and be mindful of hunters during their season...they have the "right of way" here.

Description

As of February 2017 ODNR has worked to clear off the dike walls and trail of all shrubs and brush so the roadway is a bit rough. Keep an eye out for muskrat den holes on the trail as well.

More information can be found at the Ohio DNR website.

Flora & Fauna

This is a nice simple dike wall trip around (and through if you want to extend the trip) the wildlife area that features ducks, geese, an awesome Eagles nest, fishing spots, deer, mice, muskrats...all kinds of wildlife.
