“Free intro to bay life”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

A nice free way to decide if you would like to go next door to the birding center. For free... You can't go wrong. Worth a bit of time.

“Really nice stop to view the bay.”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

This is a very nice, free nature trail. The elevated boardwalk is nice, the views are beautiful. We tied this stop in with a visit to the whaling wall, which is at the trail's entrance, and some Frisbee in the large convention center bay access area.

“Even good for non-birders”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

We are not avid birders, but enjoyed our visit here. The other birders were very willing to answer questions. Boardwalk is nice and overall this is a pleasant, peaceful visit.

“Went to watch the sunset”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

What a nice free thing to do on the island! Walked out to the sound to watch the sunset. Saw lots of cool birds but also got a few mosquito bites. No one else was on the sound side while we were there. Trees as you enter are lovely as well. Wish we had arrived with a little more daylight to spend. Check it out while you are here.
