Birding Focus: Three main habitats (lake, wetlands, mixed woods) provide good species diversity. We will look for winter residents, including raptors, waterfowl, waders and passerines. This walk is suitable for adults and children over 14 years of age. Please do not bring your dog. This site can be especially good for beginning birders.

Some of the trail is level, but there are a few steep spots and several stretches where the surface is uneven from exposed tree roots, etc. Many parts of the trail are muddy and/or slippery after rains; plan your footwear accordingly.  Watch the  weather forecast and dress accordingly.  Restrooms are available at the SW corner of the park, near the baseball fields.

Directions and parking: From I-285 on the north side of Atlanta, take Exit 29. Go south on Ashford Dunwoody Rd. about 0.95 mile, then turn left onto W. Nancy Creek Dr. NE. Drive 0.6 mile to the second parking area on your left, across the dam and at the SE corner of the lake.
