Easy walk for two adults plus a third grader with no discernible elevation gain. The bathrooms at the entrance were closed due to vandalism, which is sad. However, the pit bathroom near the turnaround point of the River Estuary Trail was open, and a welcome respite. Lots of great birds to see, a couple really huge sturgeon hanging out in the shallows, as well as one white sturgeon making its way up the river. Very low tide.

Drove there only to find out dogs are not allowed.  Suggest adding "not pet friendly" to the "kid friendly" "hiking","walking", etc info blocks.

I've ran and walked this trail dozens of times. pretty view sometimes in summer and a good exercise track for runners.

Kind of a bummer. Drove out here with my dog to find out that she wasn't allowed to go on the trail.

Nice set of trails with varied scenery. the marshlands are a beautiful ecosystem, and the longest of the trails tours through a now-completed Wetlands restoration project. Some paths are a little narrow for passing bit it's not a big issue. There is a simple restroom on the longest trail.

This trail is lovely for a walk partially in the woods, and mostly in the wetlands with views of the Hood Canal and of course the wetlands. One thing about this trail that I was not impressed with is the poor condition that it was in. This trail is supposed to be a walking trail, but with little maintenance, a lot of growth is overcoming the trail, leaving little access for daily walkers. For the most part this trail I would say should be recommended for people who want to find a daily walking trail.

Enjoyed an AM walk as it provided a clearer visual and hearing experience, however be very careful with the wet boardwalk, it can be very slippery.

Good easy trail. not much of a fan of the wet lands but were lots of birds. It is a very busy trail. It does have wheelchair access. Would recommend checking it out if you like the wetlands and/or if you want a good walk through nature

I walk the Theler Wetlands Trail several times a year and nearly always meet several parents with preschool children on the trail. It is definitely a child friendly trail.

I was on a couple of the trails about a year ago & the scenery, the birds & the trails are a unique & wonderful experience! You will meet all kinds of other people but for the most part, it's peaceful & a relaxing walk & easy with ADA accessible.
