  • Very nice shady walk of 1:30 on a footbridge above the water, beautiful surrounding flora, saw some animals, fish, turtles, snake, lizards, birds, a beautiful discovery. Easy for everyone. Just parking to pay, $1 an hour.

  • We walked the entire trail with the exception of a temporary closed section. It was beautiful and very quiet. The rest rooms were super clean.  more »

  • This place is amazing. Walking the boardwalk looking into the Slough is a thrilling experience. Peek through the trees and look into the water to see a multitude of life. One thing I would say is please be quiet as you walk around. It adds to the whole experience and nuance of being in the middle of nature.
  • If your kids don't behave and can't keep quiet don't bring them! This is an area of nature that needs to be observed in peace and quiet. There's plenty of walking trails for those looking to get exercise so please respect those wanting to enjoy nature in peace and quiet. Another words you brats in America go find something else to do nature doesn't want you around🤫
