Birding, paddling, a small hike, a beach ... Lake Everest has it all!

How to get there

From the four-way intersection in Wilmington, travel south on Route 86 toward Lake Placid. In 0.4 miles, turn left onto Bowman Lake. Parking is at the end of the road.


Paddlers can travel upriver from the public beach and are likely to encounter raptors, waterfowl, wading birds, flycatchers, warblers, other birds. Look an eye open for Belted Kingfisher tunnels in the muddy riverbanks. The habitats featured here include: cattail swamp (there are A LOT of Red-winged Blackbirds in the spring), backwater slough (perfect for waterfowl), open river, floodplain, and forest.
