Site Description and Birding Information: When you have gone a couple kilometres down 7th Line, you will come to a fork in the road just beyond 1002 7th Line. This is basically the end of the usable roadway, with the "farm" driveway being the main drag from there. However, to reach the Jock River and hike through some wooded swamp areas (usually wet), continue straight. It is around a kilometre to the river.
