Description

Hike above the Nisqually Estuary on this well-maintained boardwalk. View wildlife throughout the year, and on a clear day you can see to Mt. Rainier in the east. This unique destination changes with the tide, from hiking over the seawater at high tide to looking down at sea critters and birds along the freshwater channels at low tide.

Short Hike: Take the Twin Barns Loop Trail towards the Nisqually Estuary Trail & Boardwalk or hike the entire loop of the Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge.

Family Friendly: Flat with lots of opportunities to see wildlife.

Dry - Good largely boardwalk trail. The gravel sections are really really good too and are more like access roads.
