Negwegon State Park - Birding

Greenways Birding Trail

Negwegon State Park, located 25 miles north of Harrisville, is a 3,700-acre mixture of low land and small ridges that include mature pine forest, hardwoods and aspen with open pockets of meadows. Starting at the parking lot, a one-hour hike to South Point through mature deciduous woods will bring you to an excellent birding site for the spring and fall passerine and waterbird migration.  Nearing the point, one can hear the gulls nesting on Bird Island calling. Red-shouldered Hawks and Merlin nest within the park.  The park is accessible by Sand Hill Road that connects to Black River Road - a sandy but passable road. However, Sand Hill Road that connects to Negwegon Park Road north from US 23 is very sandy and a four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended.

Available in Spring Available in Summer Available in Fall Public Restrooms
