lots of benches, bathrooms and wide trails that are more like dirt or gravel roads.

Easy enough hike for my 5 and 7 year old boys. Great visitor center at the entrance with maps and information on the local flora and fauna

This is a lovely easy walk that we've now done twice on Winter solstice. Come in the last hour of the day for a special golden light that makes for amazing photos. Plenty of birds and a nice visitor center to warm up in with knowledgeable docents. Plenty of parking as well.

If you are with kids or grandparents, walk out to the boardwalk and bridge, explore the ruins of the Big Barn. If you'd like a longer stroll, do the whole loop. About 2 miles for the loop.
