AuSable Shoreline Park, Oscoda

Greenways Birding Trail

The southern end of the Sunrise Coast Birding Trail begins here. Located on the east side of US 23 just south of the AuSable River bridge, this mixed woodland and shoreline area offers diverse habitat and bird species. From the “hide”, observe birds feeding at stations. Climb the observation platform along the paved trail and boardwalk leading to the shoreline where Green Herons frequent the small pond below the observation deck. The federally endangered Great Lakes Piping Plovers often nest along this Lake Huron shore. Walk the sugar sand beach north to the break wall. Spring and fall are opportune times to observe migrating waterfowl
along the river mouth.

Available in Spring Available in Summer Available in Fall Accessible Public Restrooms
