Decent length of walk, about 30-40mins. Usually quite a bit of wildlife to see - birds and water life. There are points of the walk that do not have railing, at all. Which I am not fond of . It’s a decent length of walk without railing, about half the walk is unsecured without railings. Nice elevated bridge with lookout points about 3/4 through walk. Also at the walk entrance/exit there is a lookout tower that goes about 5 stories I believe. Very nice spot to explore every now and then and great for tourists.

Multiple entrance points to determine the length of your walk. Walk averages 20-30 mins when I go with my two children. Historic houses that you can enter, depending on time that you go. This walk is part land/dirt-stone and part boardwalk . This walk is one of my favourites as there’s always something new to see!

Wonderful walk for birding. Very easy for my 10 and 11 year old. Our one year old enjoyed trying to get into the marsh. Parents didn't enjoy that part.

The trail is easy but there are some season footpaths that are difficult. We took a footpath that landed us on the beach it was gorgeous.

Very cool trail! Worth the visit if you're from SWO

The east side footpath is windy; don’t be surprised if you step into mud or get splashed by crashing waves. The west paved trail offers a calmer presence; gazing over the edge of Lake Erie, it’s hard to tell where the lake ends and sky starts.

The Marsh boardwalk offers an oasis of tranquility and peace. Here you will get hypnotized by the floating lily pads, wavering cattails, and pond ripples.

This is a wonderful little trail between the point and the visitor center. In addition to the scenery, I saw several Yellow Warblers and Baltimore Orioles. I walked it twice!
