Greenville is located in a migration flyway with proximity to some of South Carolina’s finest birding hot spots and migrant traps. Lake Conestee Nature Park has significantly expanded their trail system and boardwalks since 2012. Lake Conestee will provide several rarities and a long checklist. Nine Times Preserve has added a Naturaland Way, which enormously expands its birding opportunities. Other hot spots are Blue Wall Preserve, Sassafras Mountain, Caesar’s Head State Park, and Spartanburg’s Cottonwood Trail.
