This 10.5 mile loop does not Exist. At the 3.0 mile marker there is a slough, you cannot complete the loop. It dead-ends. Whoever suggested this trail obviously did not actually walk the 10.5 mile loop.
Other than that it is an awesome isolated 6 mile out and back trail. Tons of birds and isolation, not many people on the trail. Just disappointed, wanted to do a 10 mile hike. Look at my recording. Great completely flat easy hike.

Just outside my front door. Nice easy walk along the marshes. Cool birds and in the summer, usually a cool breeze from the bay. One day I want to take a paddle board out on the creek itself. It can get muddy after a rain, and the ground is pretty pocky. So don't twist an ankle.

A very casual, easy walk with many birds and small critters to observe. The entire hike is out in the open with no shade, therefore if done on a hot day, take that into consideration.
