Owner description: This 1,500-foot boardwalk crosses four acres of marshland, where bird watchers can spot many coastal and migratory birds and numerous others tempted by the berries on the fiddlewood bushes along the trail

A nice free way to decide if you would like to go next door to the birding center. For free... You can't go wrong. Worth a bit of time.

This is a very nice, free nature trail. The elevated boardwalk is nice, the views are beautiful. We tied this stop in with a visit to the whaling wall, which is at the trail's entrance, and some Frisbee in the large convention center bay access area.

We are not avid birders, but enjoyed our visit here. The other birders were very willing to answer questions. Boardwalk is nice and overall this is a pleasant, peaceful visit.

What a nice free thing to do on the island! Walked out to the sound to watch the sunset. Saw lots of cool birds but also got a few mosquito bites. No one else was on the sound side while we were there. Trees as you enter are lovely as well. Wish we had arrived with a little more daylight to spend. Check it out while you are here.

Nice boardwalk area, lots of birds and birding stations. Beautiful views of the Laguna Madre. Easy access and plenty of parking.
