Mosquito buffet....that’s what I was 10 days ago at the fluddle. I had long sleeve shirt and pants on, put my hoody on and sprayed bug spray over my clothes and I still had a dozen mosquito bites, I could only stand 10 minutes and I bugged out.

Or park in Greene Valley FP lot on Greene Rd. and follow trail to the fluddle. The east side of the fluddle has a couple of beaten down foot paths that lead to the edge. The west side has a two track (overgrown) but is really buggy and you can’t reach flats but can view the majority of the fluddle. The east side is easier but lighting could be an issue later in the day.

The map, and a quick drive by, makes it look like there is very little access, or convenient observation area. Is it best to off-road it through the grasses, or is there a better way I haven't seen?
