Lovely hike! I had the place all to myself and loved watching the birds (herons, ducks, geese, towhees, and more!) living it up in their natural habitat. As other people have mentioned, the trail does fork quite a bit but it meets back at the same place. It’s hard to get lost, just be somewhat aware of where you are and you will be fine. Taking a pic of the map at the beginning is a good idea. They ask you to pay an entrance fee of $3/car but it doesn’t seem to be monitored that closely. I just gave what I had $2 and I assume it’s fine. They deserve a few bucks for the beautiful atmosphere they created. Thank you!

Took my two children for a Thanksgiving hike. The refuge is a fantastic place to hike in the fall. The trails are moist, the moss is wet, the mushrooms are growing, the frogs are croaking, and the birds are honking. Make sure to be aware of poison oak and you’ll be fine. No dogs allowed. There is a map of all of the park trails at the entrance. Snap a pic of it and you won’t be confused about where you are going. Beautiful place!

There was poison oak everywhere and closed trails left and right. The trails were not marked well so I wasn't sure if I was going on a trail or just an area clear of brush. Won't be going again

I'm a volunteer at this refuge from time to time, so I am a bit biased. However, if you love nature, birdwatching, and being immersed in natural habitats, this wonderful place is for you.

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.

Lots of fun! Super easy. Kids loved it too.
