Salem River Wildlife Management Area
Park right off Route 45 and walk along the 0.2 mile dirt and gravel road that leads to another parking area and viewing platform overlooking an expansive marsh along Mannington Creek. You can also drive to the platform, but you may miss some wildlife along the way. The walk is pleasant as you quickly lose the sight and sound of the highway amid the tall trees and dense shrubs on the winding road. This old nursery is a very lively spot year-round for birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians.
