I almost did not venture on a hike to this location today because there was such limited information on Google about this place. Also there are several names this goes by which was also confusing. So Elsie Chapin Wildlife Sanctuary is what I went with and I was not disappointed. There was a lot of wildlife from Wild Turkey, A badger, chipmunks, and 1000's of birds The sounds were deafening. Also the pathways were lined with honeysuckle, dogwood, and mountain laurel
