Trail Guides

Trappers will tell you the river otter is one of the most ferocious mammals you’ll ever encounter. However, when observed from a distance, these shy aquatic critters are really quite loveable and fascinating. This trail brings you to several places where otters are known to occur, as well as a great variety of other wildlife. Begin at two top-notch riverside birding destinations, Red Bank Battlefield Park and Wheelabrator Wildlife Refuge, and then weave down the Big Timber Creek corridor, hitting four beautiful streamside sites along the way. Next, enjoy the wooded streets of Wenonah where trails explore Mantua Creek, and then bounce through a series of scenic lakeside parks, ending at Frank Donio and New Brooklyn Parks in Sicklerville, two sites that are good for surprise inland shorebirds and waterfowl.
