A curving accessible boardwalk brings visitors up close to the tideland marsh and steam. Artwork along the boardwalk tells the story of the stream and the many species who live there. An additional 2/3 mile loop hiking trail, the "Cutthroat Climb," leads hikers up the valley near the ridgeline and to the headwaters of the straem. Although fairly short, this upper trail can be a real workout!
