Duffield Industrial Park Trail
This informal trail follows a four mile flood channel between open fields, mudflats, and rocky shores. The trail is a great spot to find wintering and migrating shorebirds as well as grassland species like the red-winged blackbird, barn and northern rough-winged swallows, indigo bunting, eastern meadowlark, and killdeer.
From the Kane Gap Trail, return to US 23 and turn right/south on US 23. Follow this to its junction with US 58 in Duffield. Turn right onto US 58 West and proceed for 0.2 miles. Turn right (before the Sgt. Ross S. Carter Bridge) onto Rt. 772. Continue northwest on Rt. 772 for 0.1 miles to the Duffield Development Authority building on the left. The trail will run along the channel and can be accessed at the rear of the parking lot.
