This is an interesting walk along dikes and through a large marsh and adjacent woodlands. Two wildlife viewing platforms are provided adjacent to the trails. From the first viewing platform, the trail follows a dike built in 1983 as part of a Ducks Unlimited project to enhance waterfowl habitat in the marsh. At the end of the dike, the trail leads to the right via another dike and back to the highway; or left through patches of wetland forest to the second viewing platform. Many interpretive signs explain all aspects of the life of the marsh. Wet areas have been bridged with newly renovated boardwalks.

If you like to watch birds, this is the place for you.

Directions:

The main entrance to the trail system is on Highway 5 at the Holiday Inn, just south of Valemount. Enter the Holiday Inn parking lot and park in behind where the trailhead is.
