Description
Waypoints (0)

Gravel walking trail with wetland and beautiful views. A great destination for bird watching. There is not much shade so bring sun protection on sunny days. Accessibility: There is at least one designated accessible space in the partially paved parking lot off of South Rialto Drive at the south end of the trail. It is unclear if the spot is van-accessible with a striped access aisle. The trail surface is a paved boardwalk (with railings) or gravel and typically at least 4 feet wide. The estimated grade is mostly gentle (5% or less). All-terrain tires or motorized equipment may be needed for the unpaved sections. The boardwalk may be slippery and the gravel may be soft when they're wet--use caution. There are benches along the route for resting.

Phone died at 9.5 miles but good 10.5 mile dog walk chilly and windy but my new favorite place, but I’m sure with the lack of shade in the summer heat I may avoid this place.

Perfect for kayaking. No shade for hikers or runners so be prepared. Lots of wildlife/birds. Watch out for Geese droppings...

First to Review

Great nature preserve with plenty of birds. Just not a great hiking preserve.
