Reviewed 29 August 2011

I recently had the opportunity to walk a number of the trails at the Mississiquoi and they provide good insight into a fascinating ecosystem. Bring binoculars, be quiet and patient, and you will certainly have good opportunities to see wildlife (deer, beaver, raptors,fox, wading birds, etc.). But be prepared for hordes of persistent and aggressive biting flies in August. Copious amounts of insect repellent were not enough to keep them away even if it kept bites to a minimum.
