This is a wonderful place to go and explore nature. The asphalt walkway is wide to accommodate everyone. There are areas off the "beaten path" with information of the flora/fauna. There is a boardwalk that leads to a beach area where you can see the roller coasters of Cedar Point. Just a very pleasant stroll.

My wife, son, and I stopped by the preserve the morning after visiting Cedar Point. We were looking forward to the nice 1-mile hike to the beach area. Once we arrived at the beach we witnessed black waves and a nasty stench. No idea what is in the water there but it isn't healthy. My biggest complaint about the park is that there are educational signs about birds, plants, and turtles but not one sign warning us about SNAKES! We climbed up on the small cement/rock wall on the east side of trail to view the lake when my son pointed out to us a snake three feet from us. Having been distracted by the view of the lake I never looked down until he said "snake". I quickly noticed the fact that there wasn't just one snake but at least seven all around us on the rock wall. We flew off this wall and got back to the safety of the trail. After some research I determined that they must have been Northern Water Snakes but any snake bite has to hurt. I just picture small curious children climbing that small wall and accidentally touching or stepping on these snakes and getting bit. Please be careful of this if you visit this park.

We enjoyed the walk to Lake Erie on the Old Cedar Point Road, through wetlands and forests. Plenty of wildlife to see, and Lake Erie is always a welcome sight.

This a nice place for a walk. It is a paved path through marshland to the beach about a mile long. You may see some wildlife which is nice. The beach on one side is privately owned but the other side is available to walk along (unless endangered birds are nesting nearby). No Dogs or bikes allowed.

Many birds, animals and plants to see along the path. It was a little overgrown in spots but, overall a great place to enjoy nature.
