This short boardwalk meanders through marshy wetlands just a couple of minutes away from downtown Auburn.
There are two trailheads for the boardwalk. This entry begins the hike at the northern end.
Begin on the west side of the parking area. If you have time, the upper level of the bird tower at the trailhead has excellent views of the wetland area.
The wooden boardwalk begins shortly after leaving the parking lot, next to an information placard about the boardwalk. Be careful when the boardwalk is wet; it can get very slippery. From here, the boardwalk leads through the wetlands to the other end. Every so often, more informational placards about the wetlands pop up, so be sure to stop and read them to learn more about the area. Benches also dot the boardwalk, perfect for a quiet break.
As you stroll on the boardwalk, you may come across owls, great blue herons, beavers, ducks, geese, and other animals. Keep an eye out for an information placard along the boardwalk about the wildlife in the area to find out more about the creatures you may see here.
