Blue Goose Trail

Just up ahead, you will have the opportunity to walk on the Blue Goose Trail. This site offers an observation tower and the chance to take an easy short walk along a tree-lined trail to the shore of Lake Calcasieu. This is an excellent stop for bird watching during any season, particularly in the morning and evenings. In season, waterfowl are abundant here in part because of the grit site just beyond the observation tower. Since birds don't have teeth and can't chew, they require grit, small hard particles in their gizzards, to help grind and digest their food.
