Beautiful trail along the estuary. Saw lots of wildlife including a blue heron and a eagle. Very flat, easy trail. Short and perfect for young children too. Really enjoyed it. Takes about 45 minutes to walk out and back.

Super easy, interpretive trail (educational signs along the way.) Probably wheelchair accessible. Very short. Scenic views of Yaquina bay and estuary wildlife. Many birds to see and if you're lucky you might encounter a bird of prey hunting in the marsh or a seagull dropping clams on the hard mud to crack them open.
