Visited 8/18/19: A few sections of boardwalk were out towards the end (and appropriate warning signs were posted well in advance), but the trail was otherwise well-maintained. Beautiful walk, and the end was amazing (see pic). Wildlife: Lots of turtles and leopard frogs, common milkweed plants in the first 1/4 mile of the hike had plenty of monarch caterpillars. Birds included a belted kingfisher and lots of little songbirds that I couldn’t identify.

nice and flat trail with nice birds, frogs, and beaver dens. very buggy and the last bit of the trail was a little washed out. but if you made it to the end it was beautiful and bug free in the light breeze. worth the trek.

Great trail but only got about 10 minutes in and was flooded due to the current rains. Still saw a lot of wildlife but was a bit bummed.

Nice easy trail with lots of chances to experience wildlife along the way. Well marked paths.

A lovely afternoon nature walk that winds through creek and marshlands. It holds your attention because you are always turning corners and never know what wildlife you might come across. We saw dozens of turtles (painted) sunning themselves on fallen trees and some wading birds. Of the five trails offered at the reserve, this one was a favorite for its intimacy. Check in at the well maintained welcome center on Tabor rd. to get a trail map. They are very friendly and helpful to visitors.
