Herky Huffman/Bull Creek - Planning Your Visit


Helpful Information

Birders are drawn to Herky Huffman/Bull Creek Wildlife Management Area when the fall migration of warblers begins. Hiking, biking, and horseback riding are likely to be most pleasant in the fall through the spring. In the spring, lilies, orchids, blue flag iris, St. Johns wort and pitcher plants bloom in wet areas. There are many opportunities from early fall through late spring for hunting on the WMA.
