We only had time to walk the part of the trail from our B & B to the boardwalk out to Pilgrim Point. The boardwalk goes out through a marsh out to Portage Lake. A not to difficult walk and worth every bit of effort.

What you need to know - 1. You walk on a boardwalk over a marsh. The boardwalk goes on both sides of the river so make sure you walk both sides. 2. Be quiet and you'll see lots of animals. We saw beaver, ducks, herons,...More

Such a cool nature park. They are located near the animal shelter and I'd encourage you to walk a little pupper when you visit. It'll make your hike a bit more exciting. See you on the trails!
