Nice trail and I can see it be especially great for those who have small children or strollers. Lots of different types of birds. I went when it was low 80s and it was still respectively hot because there are not any shady parts to speak of. Probably better to go early morning or late afternoon.

This Trail is beautiful but I would say if you have a bee sting allergy maybe pass on this one. SO MANY BEES! you can hear them on the bushes and obviously you leave them alone they will leave you alone but when my oldest started to notice them he started to panic a bit. Not on the whole trail just the beginning part.

Very nice walk. Newly paved trail, not a loop. The trail meanders around several ponds. There is a bird blind to hang out in too. Several benches to sit on and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. Bring your binoculars. We saw lots of birds and some muskrat. No shade. About 1.25 miles each way. Dogs on leash ONLY. We were able to go in the educational room and check out some of the local wildlife (stuffed). Lovely couple of hours. Bring water to drink.

Low trafficked trail. Kid and leashed dog friendly. Bring a hat and plenty of hydration as the trail is a little lengthy for the wee ones and doesn’t provide much shade. I would rate this trail a 5 for bird watchers. Keep in mind the trail conditions are perfect for rattlesnakes as well in the warmer months so be vigilant.

There were a lot of amazing birds here! We were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed this nature walk. They could use some volunteers to help with upkeep. If I lived here I would definitely help out.

We love going here in January. It's cold and brisk and the trail can be soggy in places--dress appropriately. Depending on when you go, the visitor center may or may not be open (this is for January). BUT the birds are amazing! So many ducks and other water birds all in one place. Very kid-friendly trail, level trail, and close to Tri-Cities.

First to Review

Nice, easy, mostly graveled trail. Trail is 2 miles one way, with plenty of benches for wildlife viewing, and a wildlife viewing blind. Beautiful in October; the leaves are turning on the tree, plenty of chatty waterfowl and flitting tweety birds. Good place to go when you need a fresh breath of air but don't want to travel more than half and hour out of the Tri-cities.
