Another trail to the south leads to a grass/forb/shrub peninsula on Lynch Creek. The habitat is mainly cattail marsh, shrubby, bog wetland, and stream with some Red pine forest. Common avian species include the Belted Kingfisher, snipe, flycatchers, swallows, warblers, rail, Great Blue Heron, bitterns, Sandpipers, and many ducks.
