Stunning park with boardwalk!
Aug 2020 • Family
Stunning park with gorgeous boardwalk over the river where you can see aquatic plants. A must see! Easy place for a stroll or hike, and boardwalk (and watch tower) is a short walk from the parking lot.

BEAUTIFUL park with a viewing tower and marsh walking path
Jul 2020
Amazing park with boardwalk paths through the marsh - educational and fun for the kids. The paths are very accessible to all. There were huge spiders, fish and dragonflies to see as well as marsh plant life - views to the Galien River and marsh were amazing. We stayed about 1hr.

AMAZING VIEWS AND WALKS
Oct 2019
Great concept looking down over the river and being able to walk through the woods. Quiet and serene and good but tight parking.

A gem of a park hidden in plain sight
Nov 2019 • Couples
This delightful park is entered from Red Arrow Highway. The park is popular and parking is barely sufficient. The paths are wide and well maintained. The canopy walkway is terrific If you don’t mind the swaying. The signs are informative.

Wonderful fall day
Oct 2019 • Friends
Small parking lot but wonderful experience, boardwalk trail through a marsh was a delightful experience after torrential rain storm the day before, you still had to be careful with wet leaves on the trail. Another trail had us hiking above the tree canopy to a tower which swayed in the wind. Trails aren’t that long but had Fantastic views!!

Nice nature park with an interesting feature
Oct 2019
We stopped here on a sunny, windy, and cold october morning. Surprisingly, there were quite a few folks here. Parking area was already full. We walked on the canopy boardwalk to the overlook platform 60 some feet above the marsh. It's an unusual and interesting feature for a nature park. You'll be a bit wobbly-kneed when you feel the walk and platform swaying and bouncing. It's unnerving, but safe. Just keep hold of your kids, and enjoy the view below. Interpretive signs give good explanations of what you're seeing. Maybe there'll be a Bald Eagle to spot. Then take the steps down to water level and follow the boardwalk out to the river and enjoy the marsh more intimately at eye level. A nice wide trail switchbacks gently up the slope for the return to the parking lot. Not sure, there may be more trails here, but the boardwalks are the major attractions, I think. A pleasant and quick hit of nature, for those so inclined.

Breathtaking!
Sep 2019
A wonderful walk through nature. The lookout is spectacular. I have also kayaked thru the river below and it's just as beautiful from the water, as it is from the hike. If you love the outdoors, it's worth the stop! ENJOY!!

Boy did we enjoy----board walk in the marsh and an elevated boardwalk in the air
Oct 2019
Very well done---a great boardwalk in the marsh up to the Galien river----and a elevated boardwalk up to a deck that is way up above the river area--60 feet up. The walk to the deck is called a canopy walk because your up in the canopy of the trees.
