Very hot and humid as it is this time of year. Well maintained trail. Defiantly stroller accessible IF yours has BOB style wheels. Lots of smells crabs to watch and fish jumping. The sun on the water is beautiful. Wooden walk way over the water is in great shape. Parking lot had plenty of room too. I did it with a 7 month old on my back.

Absolutely beautiful trails and well maintained! The only reason I would not rate higher is because the trails are not marked at all. Still, they are clean and easy to navigate with interpretive signs along the way with plenty of wildlife.

Great walk for all. Make sure you have bug spray. We hiked it in March on a cloudy day. It is easily accessed for all.

Very easy walk with chance to see plenty of wildlife. At sunset, the surrounding marsh turns unfairly gorgeous. Relish it.

It's a perfect local trail. As of this week they have had to take out a few raccoons for rabies so I suggest not bringing your dogs until it gets under control
