Pancake-flat boardwalk over swampland and gravel trail with some pretty vistas and observation shelters. It's something a little fun and different for the area. Currently the Alltrails route has you turn around before reaching the northern observation shelter, but make sure to travel the extra 0.1 miles to the observation shelter -- the view is worth it!

A little crowded. It’s one big loop with certain pull off points/outlooks.

Really nice. More of a stroll than a hike. Very wheelchair and stroller accessible.

Easy, mostly on boardwalks. Some gravel. Very well maintained, lots of shade and great for kids. There weren’t a lot of people there. Most of the observation decks were closed though

Well maintained trail. Wheelchair accessible. No bicycle allowed. Easy trail with a lot of wildlife. Trail extended in one spot. This recording is more accurate. it's actually 2.1 miles.

Perfect for kids & even stroller friendly if you choose. Volunteers were out with a table to show kids different animal skulls & skins.
