  • love this place eagles are beautiful and come back every year. they have a few mates that stay all year long.  more »
  • depending on the time of year you likely to see thousands of birds and a lot of eagles. we visit multiple times a year.  more »
  • Beautiful scenery and plenty of wildlife. Saw snakes swimming, plenty of birds, and even a few river rats. Road was maintained well and the views were gorgeous. Highly recommend on sunny and clear days when you can enjoy the view.
  • Lots of wildlife if you slow down and look. I was there mid week, later in the day, few people there. But I saw lots of pelicans, ducks (or terns?) Many blue herons, and even a pair of otters. It was my first time seeing otters in the wild. Enjoyable day.
