Attempted this today, most was gated off and cows on the other side. Not a single other human was in sight! We didn’t get to do much because the no trespassing and gated areas. Also on here says dogs ok on leash, but there was many no dogs signs posted. All the birds and fowl was amazing! We loved it! We hope to go back on a cooler day. Was nice and flat so my kids LOVED it and loved the huge variety of fowl.

You CANNOT do this loop from April to September. It is the opposite of what the descriptions says. It is a waterfowl area and it is nesting season during this time. They don't want you back in there. Also, this is a full-on dirt road, not a trail just f.y.i.

My husband and completed this hike on May 13, 2018. We live in Clinton, so we were actually able to bike there, chain our bikes, hike, then ride back.

The area itself was very interesting. We saw lots of wildlife.... frogs, a snake, and flocks of geese, cranes, and pelicans. The views were great as well... beautiful views of mountains on practically all sides.

The major drawback was the bugs. We were expecting them, and drenched ourselves in deet accordingly. It worked to some extent.... neither of us got bit. However, the bugs were still everywhere, congregating in swarms we could both see and hear. I sometimes had to put my jacket over my mouth and nose so that I wouldn't inhale them. Definitely made for a bit of stress!

pretty walk. Not really a hike. We took our 7 kids. I wouldn’t recommend for children prone to get close to water edge and fall in. We used a child leash to keep a toddler close but I still felt pretty stressed out a few times. The views were pretty but the bugs as you can imagine were awful. Big mosquitoes and quick to fill your car the moment you open the door. We had a good laugh trying to get kids in and out. Overall it was a great time and we plan to go back. With better bug repellent. Lol

Nice way to get out and walk around and see a lot of fowl and the view of the mountains. Since it is an easy trail you can pick up the pace.

It's got some pretty good sunsets and kyacking out there is pretty fun if no where else is nearby

not much for scenery and LOTS of mosquitos

Just went to check it out, only went 3 miles, but it was just to see what it was like.

There is no longer a trail to walk or hike. Perhaps it has been overgrown. The restroom was good.

Not so much a hike as it is a peaceful place to walk. It's very quite and all you can hear are the birds and the wind. If it isn't windy there will be bugs- it is wetlands after all so bring some bug repellant. This is a bird hunting location in the fall and winter. It is a waterfowl managment area so keep away from nests and follow the same rules as hiking and camping- leave it clean or cleaner than it was when you arrived.
