We recently visited this small NWR that protects a large segment of salt marsh. We followed the Carson trail which proved to be an easy one mile walk along an upland edge with a continuous view of the protected marsh and tidal river.

This is a great trail to walk. It's about a mike long, and nice and flat. Very easy to walk, and there are multiple scenic overlooks. Pick up a trail guide before you walk and you'll find out information about each of the points of interest/stations.

A great free chance to learn about the coastal ecosystem. Very easy trails (no hills) with plenty of benches. Very informative pamphlet provided which describes eleven viewing points. Picnic tables and restrooms at trailhead.

This is a little off the main road. It is a great walk in this nature preserve. The trails are very easy to follow. Park is very well kept up. Mostly level walking trails. Area is pretty well explained and the views are wonderful.
