Description

Not only is Mallard's Nest Natural Area along an enjoyable section of Spring Creek Trail, but, as its name suggests, its a good place for duck-watching. The mallards typical quack, quack, quack, blends melodically with the restful sounds of the flowing creek. Remember to just watch, but not feed, the ducks so they don't loose their fear of people and become aggressive.
