         Site Description and Birding Information: East of 9 Mile Road, Route 200 becomes Martel Road, which passes through a good variety of deciduous and coniferous woodland along the way. The entire area can be quite wet in any season but winter, so boots are recommended in warmer months. Insects can be bothersome at that time too.
