“Bicycling or tkaing a walk here is beautifull. Lovely old loggin road and quite flat..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Some of the road is shaded and some is in the sun. Follows the river and many people walk their dogs here..Kayaking looks like it would be fun to do on this river..

“Nice easy strolling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Lovely flat walk (for as long as you want, basically....we did about 3km before turning back) through the redwood forests on the right bank of the river. We saw an osprey too!

“Lovely area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

Big river is a lovely place. You can rent canoes and paddle up the river. It will have kelp in the water, as it's an inlet to the sea. Enjoy!

“Nice dog beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

Plenty of room to run and play with your dogs but be careful about some less responsible dog owners who may not have the friendliest dogs.
