Late warblers, vireos, flycatchers, thrushes and other forest-loving birds will be found.  Leaders:  Dennis and Pedro Miranda.

Dress for warm weather but to minimize ticks, wear long pants and sleeves, wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots, bring a water bottle, binoculars and a scope is optional.  Rate of difficulty: Easy, at most, the trail’s distance totals 1-1/2 miles.  For more information, please visit:  http://www.upperhanovertownship.org/millhill.htm.  Neighboring Sites to Visit: Fruitvale Road, Camelot Park & Hosensack Creek riparian lands.
