Out and Back easy 20-30 minute short trail starting from parking lot beside Hwy 98 or parking at Weeks Bay Reserve Center. The main trail leads to small wharf on Weeks Bay water/marsh edge where Pelicans fish the waters.

Have seen some patches of poison ivy growing along trail routes so beware if you are susceptible. So far we have not contracted any..

Some work in restoring the area to its natural habitat. Weeks Bay workers always friendly, accommodating and welcoming to us dogs.

Also some boggy water areas that look prime habitat for snakes.. We are doing this trail regularly in Winter - early spring on colder days to avoid snakes since we pups can't stay out of the water.

That said we have only seen an occasional garden snake..

Awesome place!

Fun little boardwalk trail.

Great boardwalk to overlook Weeks Bay. Took my kids, 3 & 5 year olds, and they loved playing with the hermit crabs, seeing the live alligator, and viewing the snakes. Great educational moments happened at this place. They had trails in the wooded area surrounding the boardwalk, but it was too flooded, as it had record breaking rain. It was in August.
