Litzenberg Memorial Woods–North of US-224
eBird Bar Charts by Season
This time of year I make many quick stops daily in my county, but I definitely have a few fall favorites in Hancock County where I can spend hiking most of the day. One of them for arriving Sparrows and migrating Warblers is Litzenberg Memorial Woods. The entire park is 227 acres including North and South side of the road with various habitats of deep ravines, old growth woods, creek and river bank, wetlands, expansive grasslands, and monitored bluebird area.
The more familiar section is on the north side of US-224 with the historic McKinniss Homestead with gorgeous barns and period garden as well as a scenic, accessible walkway into the woods. Long-eared, Great Horned, Barred and Screech owls have been seen there.
