I can’t tell you how awesome it is to live 20 minutes from this amazing natural resource. It is such a treasure. And if you go ‘off hours’ (anytime time but on a beautiful Saturday) there is a very good chance you will only have to share the trail or area with one or two other parties. And if you go during fowl weather, you are pretty much guaranteed to have the place to yourself. The beaver pictures are from Refuge trails, the heron is on the shores of Lake Champlain at the boat access in Swanton.
