  • Alas, didn't see many birds, but still pretty pleasant. Lots of benches interspersed along the path too.

  • Very nicely kept area for wildlife viewing, either educational information. The pit toilet were very nicely kept and clean. A perfect roadside stop.
  • Kayaked with a small group. So calm and serene.Only downside was no beaches visible to get out and explore the beautiful desert surrounding. Put kayaks in water at 8 a.m. Spent about 4 1/2 , hours paddling in and out. Lots more to explore. Beautiful views of the mountains and saguaro too. GO
