I have been here several times and always find it peaceful.(except for the occasional school outing). There is a short and level walking path with several scenic overlooks and some educational postings along the route.Generally speaking it is not at all crowded and at certain points along the way you can actually feel like you are out in the "real" country; too bad about those huge houses you can see across the river!

This is a great place for an evening stroll but bring your mosquito repellent. You are in the woods afterall.

The walkways thru the refuge make for easy walking. The ultimate time to go is at high tide but it is beautiful anytime.

Too short a visit! A wooded area with planked trails that border the Mousam River.
