Day Hiking

The AuTrain Songbird Trail is a lovely 2 mile loop trail. Take the first campground loop to the right and you will find the trailhead near campsite #11. The trail winds through forest and field, along bog and lakeshore, and includes an observation platform on Au Train Lake's Buck Bay. The best time to hear the 'woodland concert' is in the morning when the birds are most active, but you can walk the trail any time of the day. In the forested areas, you may see such birds as chickadees, cedar waxwings, and nuthatches. From atop the observation platform, near the trailhead, you may see ducks, shorebirds, and perhaps even an eagle or osprey.
