Short on time but need some nature, this trail fulfilled the need. It's a level crushed stone path =Easy walk.. Sadly the observation deck doesn't offer much of a view ,do to the Invasive Phragmites. Its close to some homes and road way. Nice covered picnic area. I don't recall a bathroom option.
We visited on October 26, 2020. Well maintained pathways offer a nice place for a walk, and the fall colours were quite good. There is no longer a pathway all the way to Lake St.Clair since they have allowed invasive phragmites to take over much of the natural marshland.
