Fodor's Review

On the outskirts of town (about 20 mi from downtown off I–10), this 600-acre hilly haven for rare birds and orchids offers more than 5 mi of hiking trails, including one handicapped-accessible trail (rollerblades and bicycles are not allowed). Bird-watchers from around the world are often spotted here. Some species are seasonal, such as blue jays (fall and winter), eastern meadowlarks (spring), red-winged blackbirds (spring and summer), scissor-tailed flycatchers (spring, summer, and fall), and double-crested cormorants (winter). See turkey vultures, finches, Carolina wrens, doves, northern woodpeckers, northern cardinals, mockingbirds, and more year-round.
