Single footpath through boggy terrain with many brooks and streams to cross. Listen and look for birds, owls and other wildlife. The trail is in and out the same way so go as long as you want or longer if you please. Lookouts are well maintained and some have tidal beach access. This Estuary is on tidal water so come prepared and look up the tide chart ahead of time. Trail is generally above high water mark. Old growth and moss are spectacular. Bring a picnic and stay a while - pack in pack out! This site is a part of a 3000 acre parcel of land entrusted to Nature Conservancy Canada

It was almost 5 hours return trip. Loved all the old growth forest. You cross 2 small beaches as well. Really well marked trail.
