Hillman Marsh Conservation Area reviews
This is a great place to visit. We saw many birds and enjoyed the walk around the Marsh. Everyday we ventured to the Marsh as it was a short walk from the cottage we rented.

Great family outing, nice hike. We visited here during the morning and ended up exploring and walking the trail in its entirety. We passed a couple of hours as we took our time. Nice conservation...

It's great in May... but I wish someone warned me that it would be dry in the fall so I didn't have to walk in, braving all those mosquitoes, only to find it was dry in September. Hope this saves someone a trip! Also, in the fall there's nothing worth seeing here. But in May, this place is bustling with bird life. They have a banding station as well, which is always a ton of fun. I don't remember the exact times, but it's not one of those only early in the morning ones.
What a great area! Well marked trails. Lots of birds sighted- geese, sandpipers, long legs, black bellied plover, kill deer, blackburnian warbler, blue teal ducks and more!
