Stumbled across this spot by accident, and what a treat! So close to the city, but gloriously secluded. There is a (mostly) wood paved walkway to follow, with informational signs regarding native flora and fauna. Two extremely long piers allow you to walk all the...More

It probably takes 5-7 minutes to walk out there, but it's an easy paved and board walked path. Several people ride bikes out to the end. I don't no if people had fishing licenses. It looked like causal fishers, and 1 serious... More
