Indian Creek Nature Center is a 300-acre tract of upland and marsh within the Upper and Lower Lakes Wildlife Management Area leased from the Department of Environmental Conservation. Nature trails, handicapped access, boat access, and viewing tower. The wet sedge meadows are home to the Pied-billed Grebe, American Bittern, Least Bittern, Northern Harrier, Black Tern, Sedge Wren, LeConte's and Nelson's Sharp-tailed Sparrows. The wetlands are mostly on private land, but can be accessed through some managed areas. The center has two entrances on County Route 14 (CR14) which connects State Highway 68 to Rennselaer Falls. The East entrance is across from a red barn. This entrance will allow you to access the Wildflower Loop and Upland trails. Approximately 0.5 miles further down CR14, will be the main entrance to Indian Creek Nature Center. This entrance will allow you to access the Boardwalk-Observation Deck trail (note: this trail is fully handicapped accessible), the Lowland trail, the Observation Tower trail, and the western end of the Upland trail. At the end of this entrance road (0.3 miles) is a parking area.
