Description

The first half of this trail is made of GeoBlock, a hard plastic material allowing the hiker to hike over the fragile wetlands without negative impact on vegetation and soil. They do sink, so this trail is best done with rainboots. Midway, a split log bridge provides easy crossing over a narrow stream.

The last half is boardwalk following the bank of the Alaganik Slough, and ends at a bench offering hikers a place to sit and relax.

In June, wildflowers are abundant, especially irises. This is a popular access site for anglers during the coho salmon season from August to mid September. Interpretive signs provide information on the natural cycles of the delta.

Flora & Fauna

This trail is in the wetlands of the Alaganik Slough. Irises and other wildflowers are abundant in the early summer. Coho salmon swim up Alaganik to spawn.
