Greer Lakes


Bird shots from the Greer Lakes:

Ospreys commonly are observed at these lakes.  This bird chose to nest right by the road one year.  With the exception of this bird, keep observations of nesting Ospreys to a respectable and safe distance.  They are sensitive birds at their nesting site.

Map Legend:  The black line/path is Highway 373.  The blue line/path is Greer Lakes Rd., which accesses the three reservoirs.  The lime green path/lines are roads that separately reach Tunnel and Bunch Reservoirs.  "P's" indicated parking lots.  By looking at the southeastern end of River Reservoir, another parking area is shown.  To access that section of River Reservoir, see the County Road 1126 hotspot.
