Alligator Creek Nature Trail, in 27-acre Alligator Creek Park, traverses a large forested area of mixed hardwood and pine with substantial understory. The trail, 1 mile in length, offers a boardwalk that hovers over swampy, grassy and bog-like areas, giving access to superb birding habitat.
A second trail, ½-mile Beaver Creek Interpretive Trail, is also worth exploring. Both trails encompass a broad array of habitats, from marshland to mixed-age woodlands. Common Yellowthroats and Swamp Sparrows, Pileated Woodpeckers and Great Horned Owls can be found along the trails. The site is located on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lands.
