The red, green, and yellow marked trails are easily followed and suitable for all ages. The trails also would be suitable for snowshoes in the winter. The trails focus on wetlands flora and fauna. There are several raised observation decks and boardwalks. The yellow trail has views of a large blue heron rookery. If you enjoy birding, bring your camera and binoculars.

About an hour's drive for us and well worth it.
Google had us taking North Umberland Street, which is currently closed as the bridge is out.
We were the only people most of the day, had one young man with a dog pass us on the trail at one point.
Saw about a dozen species of birds including robins, song sparrows, and the incredible Herons. Snakes, bees, evidence of a beaver but no actual sighting, muskrat and a tremendous amount of wildflowers.
A terrific visit overall.
