Bird watching

Tanglewood is a great place for birdwatching. I have had some of my favorite birding experiences there. There is a wide variety of habitat to attract different types of birds native to our area. Tanglewood offers open fields, woodlands, and ponds and they all attract different types of birds. There are also various man-made structures to assist birds in nesting.

There are plenty of opportunities to see wildlife at Tanglewood. Wildlife is particularly active there in the early morning hours and early evening hours before dark. Deer, chipmunks, and rabbits are plentiful. I have even seen a fisher there, for only the second time in my entire life.

If you enjoy trail running, Tanglewood is just the place. A wide variety of terrain to accommodate any type of run you could like. Hills to climb. Technical rocky trails. Like to run downhill. Want some flatter terrain? It is all there.

Relax and enjoy nature

Looking to just relax and enjoy nature? There is plenty of space to just stretch the legs for a minute and then settle in to relax in just the right spot. Sit and relax by one of several ponds. Walk up the hill and sit on a bench and enjoy the view. Walk out along one of several flatter trails and still be able to see out over the valley for some excellent views of our region.
