A few days ago my 11 year old nephew and I went hiking at the Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge in Alabama, NY. We walked the Swallow Hollow and Onondaga trails. This was our second time visiting these trails. Our first time was in June, 2009. Both times the trails were abundant with wildlife. This visit we saw turtles, frogs, blue herons, many birds, dragonflies, deer, and a mouse. I highly recommend a visit to this wildlife refuge.
WARNING: Be careful walking the Onondaga trail. There are many animal made holes near the water section of the trail. Try not to step in a hole while enjoying the beautiful views and wildlife.
