Most of it is boardwalk with a little bit of gravel along the dike. Nice to see all of the birds, and kids enjoying trying to determine which bird was which.

Wonderful trail for birding. This would also be good for small children, wheelchair, and people who don't enjoy elevation changes. Enjoyed a peaceful morning with nature (bald eagle was spotted!)
