An oasis in American Canyon
Feb 2021
This is a paradise. The trails are perfect for a stroll or a run. Bring a lunch and sit on a bench with a bay view and enjoy the sounds of nature. Bring your dog for a perfect morning walk and their is a pet water fountain to keep them hydrated. The views are fabulous.

One of my favorite places
Dec 2019
When I'm looking for a nature field day and don't want to spend the bus fare, I go here. In the winter, especially, all sorts of marine birds gather, including huge numbers of avocets. At the end of the trail is Glass Beach, so named because it is almost completely covered with weathered sea glass, and from here, I can continue on into the State wildlife lands. This is also the only place where I have seen the Allen's hummingbird, so different from our abundant Anna's hummingbird.

Hike with my Grandson
Feb 2018 • Family
Saw lots of birds, went to Glass Beach and had a great hike. Made him a reed broom to play with after we read the signs about the Indians. He wants to go fishing next time.

While there wasn't much to look at besides the pile of dirt in the middle and the bay, it was a nice walk and very peaceful.

Great place to observe marine birds
Apr 2017 • Family
This is a gem of a place hidden in American Canyon. I bring my bike and my binoculars. It's a bit of a ways from the parking lot to the water, but it's worth it. It's completely flat, so it's easy to bike. I have seen raptors, egrets, herons, ducks, coots, swan families, and all kinds of other smaller water birds. There is also a spot called glass beach that's fund to beachcomb. This marshland was built over an old landfill, so you will bind interesting old beachglass and ceramics on that beach. There is a loop that people like to walk & jog around. Great local place to get outdoors and birdwatch/excercise.

Very peaceful
May 2017 • Couples
Hearing about there being a Glass Beach sucked me in. We were staying in Napa and wanted to go for a scenic walk, so may as well check out the Glass Beach. I admit I was a bit disappointed with the beach, but the walk through the marshlands was great.

There's a nice parking lot with some picnic tables and benches nearby as well as a trail map. At every intersection there are arrows telling you which way to go for the trail you want to be on. It's a nice flat scenic walk. We were here on a Wednesday morning and it was fairly quiet. We ran into some people riding bikes and some walking their dogs.

There are good views of the mountains looking over the river. All in all it was a peaceful walk.

Wildlife abounds here!
Nov 2016 • Friends
We had friends who are long time birders visit us recently and they love this area. There were swans, waders, ducks, raptors, jackrabbits, and more to see and photograph. The trails are easy to follow and afford different views while walking. We just hope people learn to keep it pristine and free from litter and man-made trash. Well worth visiting.

Lot of dead bushes

Okay, I'm not a tree-hugger, but this was not very exciting at all. Yeah, there's a number of birds around to see, but it's not a very exciting walk at all.

Great family hiking and bird watching spot

Great hiking and bird watching spot! Easy hike for kids, close to playgrounds and good eateries at the end of the trail close to Highway 29.

Beautiful, Serene Wetlands
Jun 2016 • Couples
The Wetlands in American are one of our treasures! We love walking along the wetlands trail, viewing the plants and birds that float on the water or fly overhead.
