The actual trail shown is for the Adventure Park trail that is connected to the Aquarium, which you must pay for. The path we walked was along General Booth to Birdneck, walked to Belles and turned around about 4 miles. However, not what we thought we were going to do. Its a decent walk, but not a nature walk, and loud from traffic.

Actually used kayak from the mouth of Rudee inlet to paddle back into the creek, Easy voyage, saw some wildlife from a distance, i.e. cranes, snake lots of little fiddler crabs. very nice trip but not long.
