About This Area

This area provides public access to the Thompson River.  It is comprised of approximately 70 acres of woodland and 10 acres of openland.  The open field contains a small restored wetland.  The area name originated with a real estate agent and piano player from Atlanta, Georgia who built a small cabin on a nearby hill and named his retreat "Mockin' Bird Hill".
