It was ok. I liked it best during fall and spring, specially if it has rained recently. No dogs allowed, they also have an auto tour route, in case you don't feel like walking. map shows incorrect in the app, start for trail is much closer to freeway, actually next to it.

Go at Sunrise! Stunning. Easy walk. Take camera. Beautiful flowers, cat tails, birds. Waterfowl... Peaceful. Nice way to spend some quiet time in morning in nature

Easy day hike. There were plenty of ducks and a few heron. The wild sunflowers were a treat.

Very beautiful hike. Lots of wildlife to be seen, specifically birds. Plenty of solitude to be had to make you feel as if you are getting away from it all, even with the Sacramento skyline still in view. Very flat, easy, trail.

This is my go-to six-mile hike that I go to several times weekly to bird watch. Where else can you go within five minutes of downtown Sacramento and see absolutely no one but a few rice farmers, some bird watchers, and a crop duster or two in the distance. And sometimes there is no one else in the entire 17,700 acres! Since this is a wildlife sanctuary, there are literally thousands of birds, and as the seasons change so too do the birds. So, if you want a peaceful, relaxing, beautiful place to walk, run, hike or jog, this is it! And it's five minutes from downtown Sacramento--amazing.

I have been here only several times... It's a very interesting spot to drive over on the freeway as well as to drive through. The wildlife area is right next to the freeway and you will find many birders. Overall very accessible, and there is a bird hunting area in the back (but you would never know it visiting for the first time).

Spent a few hours walking around the wildlife area to watch the birds and enjoy the scenery. Everything is flat and walks are easy.
