Tips for birding Greenbower Bridge
There is an unmarked and unpaved parking spot on the north side of the road, but it is a rather steep entry. Several vehicles can park there. It may be better to park on the other side of the street along the edge of the Stark Parks walking path. Other fishers and birders often park there. The walking path seems new there or recently upgraded with fresh surface and new signs. There is a marked crosswalk and the walking path continues east, across the bridge and a bit beyond where it then turns north, eventually heading across the dam between Deercreek and Walborn. There is also a sign marking it as a bike lane.

About Berlin Lake
Berlin Lake lies in the northeastern part of Ohio at the junction of Stark, Portage, and Mahoning counties. The lake is located on and is accessible from US-224 and OH-14 and OH-225. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers constructed Berlin Lake in 1942 on the Mahoning River. The Congressionally authorized purposes were flood control, low flow augmentation, water quality control, and water supply. Berlin Lake has a mean depth of 23 feet with a maximum depth of 55 feet. Annual water level fluctuations can be as much as 20 feet. Mud, sand, and gravel make up most of the bottom composition. Rock ledges can be seen along the original river channel at low pool level.
Restroom facilities can be found at the headquarters building, the picnic area by the dam, and the Circle Restaurant in Deerfield.
