Hayburger Trail Description
The Hayburger Trail is named after a family homestead that was located in the area until the 1930s. This trail is a beautiful hiking route that passes through marsh areas that are popular for observing birds and even moose. The trail comes to an aspen forest and some meadows along the route. From the parking lot, follow the obvious trail and come to a junction. The trail can be hiked in either direction to create a loop back to the junction.
