Great birding area with the trail slicing between sphagnum bogs and a beaver pond.

From the parking lot head west on the access trail bearing right at the trail junction to reach Clubmoss Trail. This trail is a bird watchers delight. The trail loops through open low-lying field between several peat bogs and a large beaver pond. Bird watchers are offered an observation platform, where they regularly congregate during spring and fall migration periods. Canada geese, red-tailed hawks, great blue heron and a variety of songbirds and woodpeckers are seen all year. Unusual plant life along the trail includes winterberry, sundew, pitcher plants, cotton grass, and ostrich ferns to name a few. The trail 1.5 miles round-trip and is located in the northern section of Eagle Creek .

Appropriate apparel, water-resistant footwear, and insect repellent is advised.

Directions: From Garrettsville, OH, Go east on State Route 82 for two blocks to the flashing light. Turn left (north) at the light onto Center Road. Travel Center Road for 2.3 miles to Hopkins Road and turn right (south). The visitor parking is on Hopkins Road.
