Tips for Birding

This hotspot can be a bit tricky to navigate if you are visiting it for the first time. There is parking available at the library and a trailhead available on Dickinson Street.

About this Location

This wetland is sandwiched between the village library and the Northfield Golf Course; it is a natural area with a mostly wooded circumference trail near the center of the village.

These wetlands and the surrounding 1.7-mile circumference trail are located near the center of the village, between the Library and the Northfield Golf Club. Much of the land is privately owned by the Northfield Golf Club, which has maintained a long history of public access to the trails.

Entry spots and parking areas are noted on the map.  Walkers will find woods, marshes, and floodplain forests.  An overlook bench is located off of a  spur trail from the “Vista Trail.” This trail can be wet in some seasons, with roots and rustic bridges that lack handrails.
