With twenty-three acres of fields and woods on the Bagaduce River, Ferry Landing Natural Area provides habitat for deer, small mammals, and birds. A one-mile hiking trail winds through the property to the shore. The Landing is a good canoe and kayak launch site for river exploration.
Caution! This section of the Bagaduce River can have strong and unpredictable currents that depend on the tide. Please use care when boating and observe all safety precautions.
