Pretty short and little elevation climb so it's great for small kids and those who may not be regular walkers. Plenty of birds, flowers, and lizards to watch along the way.

we didn't even walk the trail because it's $5.00 per person to just get in :(

Nice and easy trail. I had my 4 yr old and 9 yr old and they loved this trail. I loved the bird blind to watch all the birds feed.

This is a great easy walk. Perfect for kids or an evening stroll. There's even a bird blind with guides & seats to watch a bird feeding area. I have an annual state park pass so I love coming to this blind for a morning of birding.
