Lot's of construction, half of the trail looks to be the start of a new development.

Not a very good trail more of a walk... lots of construction in the area.

The City of Squamish could do a lot to improve this trail, which follows the edge of an estuary inlet but is cheek-by-jowl with active logging yards along nearby Garibaldi Road. Signage is present, but barely visible when trying to find the tiny so-called “trailhead”. The pathway is far from scenic, quite muddy, and lots of large unavoidable puddles. An extensive area, formerly brush and scrubby trees, between the road and the trail has been cleared for what looks likely to be future development, perhaps condos. We didn’t go all the way around the loop, but doubled back after less than a kilometre for lack of interest - but perhaps being late January might have had something to do with it too. Would recommend instead, the trail starting off past Third Street, about three short blocks to the west of this indicated walk, and which actually skirts the estuary meadow and flats.

Rugged, flat and beautiful. A walk really, but a nice one. Fresh bear poop visible, so despite being right next to town, take precautions in season

Less than 3% of BC's Coastline is estuarine and this is a gem in Squamish. It is also a Wildlife Management Area and while dogs are currently permitted they are required to be on a leash. It is also an Important Bird Area and many birds nest in the area and migrating waterfowl seek shelter here in winter. Black bears, coyotes, and bobcats spend time here foraging and hunting. Wildlife and pets do not mix so for your safety and that of your pets, please keep them leashed. Enjoy the wildlife and learn more about this amazing area.

Great walk through the outskirts of squamish. Rivers, ponds, railway tracks, even the ocean. You can find some interesting items and abandoned pieces in between the railway tracks and downtown. There are many hidden or grown over trails too that take you to Interesting places. If you live in Squamish or are just hangin out, take an hour to walk these trails. The growth in there is amazing.
