This is a fine, quick stop off of 101 to learn about local history. A great place to take kids for a quick hike or field trip. As for bird watching, it was a dud. Nice bird blind, though.The trail is too short and flat to be labeled a hike.
Very well taken care of nature reserve! Take time to do the entire trail. Especially make it to the end of the trail for the amazing view. The park is super clean. I did not see any trash or rubbish anywhere on site. If you are swinging through put this on the must see list. Also, the entire trail is handicap accessible.
