    It was a great walk, with even greater views. There's a main trail with gravel and such. They even provided a bench at the end of the walk for a good rest before you walk back. Then, for those who are adventurous, there's another trail below the first, that leads all the way to the edge of the island, providing even more amazing views, plenty of animals, and really nice exercise. There's also many information panels on the first trail, providing lots of information on the island, the animals that live there, and the indigenous people that used to live there, before they were forced out. All in all, I highly suggest taking a afternoon out, and goong out for a walk!

    This area has recently change the structure of the landscape. A new dike has been built and several old ones are removed so Leque Island is mostly flooded now at high tide. This change is to help young Salmon have a place to grow and get bigger before heading to sea. They will now be in saltwater but protected from predators in the ocean until they get larger.

    Used to be a great spot to take pictures of owls & other wildlife but the landscape has recently changed & is mostly under water. You cant walk very far at all before having to turn back to the parking lot...

    Nice spot to view plovers, ducks and we saw one trumpeter swan. You can access the marsh itself but bring muck boots if you want to go in!

    Although I miss being able to walk in the large open area, it has been restored to a more original state and will provide a different habitat for wildlife.
