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

Great hike, fairly easy starting out then gets a little moderate with some uphill climbing. 2 beautiful bridges near the beginning. Some muddy sections and a rope to go over a section. It is longer than 9. 1/2 km as the sign near the end says 5.5 km (done) and 250 m to the end so we would say we did at least 11km round trip.

Solid 4-5 hour hike. The end/half way point is a great spot to enjoy lunch. Good variety of hills and casual hiking. There and back is actually a bit more than 10kms opposed to the 9.5km the app suggests.

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