This is a short but pleasant trail through wetlands, meadows and forest along the Dezadeash River. The trail is easy and well marked and is recommended for those who want a short but interesting hike. Benches and a viewing stand are also located along the trail.

The first part is boardwalk and wood chips (the first 300 M of boardwalk is wheelchair accessible) passing through a wetland area. The next section of the trail travels through aspen forest and small meadows. A viewing stand is located along the riverbank about 1 km down the trail. This is a good place to stop to look for animals such as beaver, moose and waterfowl. At 1.4 km the trail splits to form a loop for the remaining 2.6 km. The left branch continues along the riverbank through tall aspen then turns back through a shady spruce forest to the beginning of the loop.

Directions:

This trail begins at the day use area just north of the Dezadeash River bridge at Haines junction.
