HikingGreat!

Beautiful river and very few people out on the trail! Backcountry vibes and scenery without being in the backcountry.

Nice little hike along the river with some nice bridges and boardwalks over wetlands. Trail in good shape. Very easy.

Not sure we found the actual trail head as we seem to have started at the end per the nature center maps. It was sort of maintained and marked but not nearly to the extent to that other trails were in the area.

Beautiful trail, flat and easy. It’s muddy in spots right now, but nothing you can’t easily avoid. Follows the Boardman River with observation decks here and there. Mostly through cedar forest but there are open sunny spots too. Maintained well. Lovely trail!

Still pretty swampy in parts, trail is uneven from bikers, walking is unlevel most of the way. Still pretty through the cedar trees

it's a nice trail and has a few good scenic views there are some bugs in a couple areas and it's a little bit money and overgrown in a few spots but overall a great trail
