Hurricane Creek Park (Site #32, Central Loop) is known for its scenic deep canyon, which is heavily wooded with mature hardwoods. The park offers a number of trails, leading birders through a landscape crisscrossed by streams and waterfalls. As you walk the trails, listen for Red-eyed Vireos and Great Crested Flycatchers among the numerous Northern Cardinals and Carolina Chickadees. Peer through the canopy for Red-tailed and Red-shouldered hawks soaring high overhead. During the winter, White-breasted Nuthatches and Yellow-rumped Warblers join the cardinals and chickadees, while almost anything could appear during migration.
Directions: From the intersection of I-65 and US Highway 31 near Lacon, take exit 318 and drive south on Highway 31 South for 2.2 miles to the park on the left.
