It was such a fun paddle. You start out with a great launch easy to get into then you can leisurely paddle through the marsh pathway take in some sights; the day we went there were swans. Once you are through there you can stay in the marsh or head to big water where there’s a wonderful little beach to dock in and have a picnic !

This was a great little trail to get out and see the marsh. the fact that it's 100% boardwalk meant that the otherwise muddy, wet conditions weren't a problem. there are sections of the trail without railings if you are bringing dogs or small children. Just be aware

Decent length of walk, about 30-40mins. Usually quite a bit of wildlife to see - birds and water life. There are points of the walk that do not have railing, at all. Which I am not fond of . It’s a decent length of walk without railing, about half the walk is unsecured without railings. Nice elevated bridge with lookout points about 3/4 through walk. Also at the walk entrance/exit there is a lookout tower that goes about 5 stories I believe. Very nice spot to explore every now and then and great for tourists.

Bird Watching

Wonderful walk for birding. Very easy for my 10 and 11 year old. Our one year old enjoyed trying to get into the marsh. Parents didn't enjoy that part.

The Marsh boardwalk offers an oasis of tranquility and peace. Here you will get hypnotized by the floating lily pads, wavering cattails, and pond ripples. http://lightwander.co/blog/point-pelee/
