Easy boardwalk to maintain No dogs on the boardwalk and lots of other people shuffling about. Lots of animals and even the occasional Moose!

Very easy walk to take children and elderly on. Very well maintained boardwalk with chances to see small wildlife. The right side of the boardwalk is adjacent to the Seward highway so wind and noise is to be expected. Very beautiful!

Nice little walk! Easy access and easily traversed by all ability levels. Many species of bird can be seen from the elevated boardwalk. We saw a bald eagle in the tree line and salmon in two of the many creeks that traverse the area.

I'd consider this a walk, not a hike. It's all boardwalk but the views are nice.

It is a really easy hike on the boardwalk. We were able to see a moose and 2 calves. There were a lot of birds and salmon. The shooting range and traffic were loud though. Other than that, it was a nice easy hike.

Lovely brisk walk, though as mentioned before the traffic and gun range sound is always a bit of a bummer. This walk is really best during migration times and in the fall. :)

Love this trail for a quick walk! We only had about an hour to walk so it was perfect! We saw the salmon and lots of ducks! It was perfect for our toddler!

Super easy walk, as it’s just a boardwalk and not an actual trail. Great for those with young children, elderly or those who cannot handle trails / hiking but want the views! Beautiful views of the mountains!!
