Beaver Creek Road (FR 135)
To hear owls, this is a good place to visit at night. Flammulated and Great Horned Owls are often heard here on late spring and early summer evenings; Northern Saw-whet Owl is possible, as is Northern Pygmy-Owl, which usually only vocalizes at dawn and dusk, but rarely in the middle of the night.
