Great trail and beautiful views!

Nice cool overcast Spring day to hike this easy, well maintained, and wonderfully simple trail. At the time of my visit the trees and grass were just greening. Lots of ducks, geese, gulls, red-winged black birds, sparrows and even a couple of loons. A few families were bbq-ing & picnicking. Was a lovely afternoon spent. I see fishing is allowed but it is a catch/release. Could see the shadows of large fish swimming lazily in the ponds. The only thing I wasn't too fond of was the mess of bird droppings. But that's to be expected with so much water fowl around, I suppose.

Beautiful location and scenery. Rented a bike near the visitor center & had a nice ride. You can get right up to the top of the falls. Rated only 4☆ because a lot of the island is under construction with detours.

Way too crowded to be enjoyable. But I suppose that is to be expected.
