Great easy hike with a nice length, though the trail forks can be confusing if it's your first time. Many different types of trees and plants are labeled and there's a nice view across the marsh. Went in late December with my friend, not too many people. Just don't be there too late, the gates close by themselves at 5pm

Had fun, kids loved it. Someone must of left a rock treasure hunt, the kids found about 4 painted rocks. All of them were painted and hidden under leaves.

We loved the herons and osprey. If you have binoculars and a telephoto lens, bring them.

The blackberries were yummy. The cedar plank long house was amazing. I wish it had been open to go inside. The Garry oaks were very mature and just lovely. But we also saw Doug Fir and many other species. Sandhill Cranes. Duck Potato in the pond. Animal tracks in the mud. Great for small children and all ages.

This is a fantastic trail, and an even better place to go birding. So many different habitats crammed in such a small place. I will definitely return.

Easy trail suitable for families with small children. We saw plenty of wildlife, including a family of muskrats. Bring a camera or binoculars.
