Au Train Lake, Songbird Trail, & Wildlife Observation Platform - Hiawatha National Forest
This easy 2-mile hiking trail, winds through forest and field, along bog and lakeshore. Near the trailhead, an elevated platform offers a view of 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 walking along the trail is great anytime of the day.
Rental kits are available that includes a field guide, a tape and tape player, and binoculars. The tape guides you along the trail and features twenty bird species.
The kits can be picked up in Au Train at the A & L Grocery, Au Train Grocery or the Paulson House Museum. A fourth kit is available at the Ranger District office. For more information call 906-387-3700 or 2512.
