The boardwalk itself is very well built over wetlands. There wasn't much to see per se unless you like muddy marsh; it was very buggy, but that was expected. The trail itself was VERY overgrown from the sides; just a simple day of pruning with a small team could make this a nice simple trail for anyone. Parking is a little ways away from the trailhead; use caution when walking alone the main road.

This a great trail on a boardwalk along Mill Creek. There is always something to watch, and you end up by a little tower with a view of the Hudson
