  • green with a lot of birds- good for hiking, picnic and more. They even have gift store and tables for BBQ. 
  • A very tranquil place. Birds, otters woodpeckers and loads of other wetland wildlife. Eucalyptus and many more varieties of trees down by the larger back trails. 
  • We took several of the trails and saw only three other people. It is a great place to learn more about the California coast.

  • I had the opportunity to go kayaking down the Elkhorn Slough. It was a truly amazing experience. I was able see so many pelicans and otters. If you are at all interested in Marine Biology or even just like looking at cute otters, this is a great place to go. I went with "Kayak Connection".
  • Great place to take a nice easy hike and see some wildlife.
  • We saw 61 otters, hundreds of sea lions and several species of birds- 31 I think. The crew of the safari was helpful, energetic and knowledgeable. Plus they provided us worth hot coffee and oatmeal raisen cookies! Awesome time!
  • Nice hiking trails with good views
  • Easy trails and nice scenery
