|Trumbull Lake/Smith’s Slough
Explore this pothole lake and marsh by canoe and enjoy pelicans, cormorants, herons and waterfowl, or drive the paved road through mature trees from the east side of Trumbull Lake to view songbirds, especially Warblers in spring and fall. There is a nice variety of spring wildflowers in the woodland area on the east side.
Wind your way through the slough, canoeing among the cattails, Beaver lodge, Muskrat houses, Herons, Bitterns and Sedge Wrens.
Trumbull Lake is part of the 9 mile long Trumpeter Canoe Trail through the shallow lakes and marshes near Ruthven. Smith’s Slough connects Trumbull Lake to Mud Lake. Mud Lake is a private lake which is open to the public for canoeing during the spring and summer. It is, however, closed to the public when the duck season opens in early September.
