Nature trail with lots of wildlife Nice easy trail with several boardwalks over swampy marsh along the way, as well as an overlook for bird watching and more. Plenty of bugs in the summer, so be sure to pack repellent.
Hiked and it seems paved the whole way. Aside from the beginning the parking is just off to the side of the fire station--you have to enter the fire station to park.
A nice trail with a boardwalk across some wetlands. Starts with a slight descent that will seem steeper on the return trip. Be sure to wear bug spray in the summer as the swampy conditions are perfect for flies and mosquitoes. The trailhead is located next to the Belmont Fire Department.
