Cedar Point Tideland Trail Report:

I’ve visited the Tideland Trail many times over the last several years. With it’s graveled paths and wooden bridges it does provide realitively easy access to handicapped nature lovers. This area is most enjoyable late fall through early spring to avoid the mosquitos and other insects.

I’ve observed a variety of bird life here including: Great White Egret, Snowy Egret, Great Blue Heron, various woodpeckers, Blue-grey Gnat Catcher, Red Wing Blackbird, Eastern Blue Bird, Cardinal, Carolina Chickadee, and more! Most years there is a nesting pair of Osprey on the property. Bring your binoculars or a camera with a “long lens.” The best birdwatching takes place on weekdays. The area gets quite busy with local dog walkers and joggers on the weekend making the feathered populice a bit jumpy.
