Trails, including a boardwalk, an observation platform and an observation tower provide access for observing a variety of plants and animals found at the Nature Center, located on the Upper and Lower Lakes Wildlife Management Area. Watch for resident and migrant birds, mammals, amphibians, reptiles, and insects. Study the trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and wetland plants close-up.

Indian Creek Nature Center is one of eight hiking locations featured in St. Lawrence County's Great 8 Nature Nuts Challenge!

The Great 8 Challenges have been designed to introduce you to new trails and experiences across St. Lawrence County (the largest in New York!) Explore great nature-filled hikes with interpretive signs, wildlife lookouts, boardwalks and birding. All of the challenge trails are family friendly and can be explored if you're new to the outdoors, a seasoned hiker or somewhere in between!
