“A quick out-and-back to the Mink River.”— Dylan Payne
After applying liberal amounts of bug spray, just head south on the trail for just short of one mile. That's it, no big turns, spots where the trail disappears, or other directions to go. Just plenty of old growth trees in an area that was otherwise forested out a century ago. Eventually, the trail opens to a well-maintained grass beach where you can observe waterfowl and aquatic mammals (though they are far less common than they used to be). Similarly, this is an excellent fishing spot when the water levels are high, although that also is becoming less common.
Deer, raccoons, opossum, and the rare mink or stoat account for the large mammals.
