This is a very nice short trail that is a real tribute to Rachel Carson's calling our attention to the importance of the salt marsh ecosystem to the health of the ocean.

Very scenic area, had the opportunity to check out the Carson Wildlife Refuge a little bit, lots of kayaking and photography to be done here.
