Finally visited the area after years of driving by and was most impressed. Information boards along the dyke let one know all about the eagles in the area. A great place to sit back and watch these great birds - The bald eagle!

Went on a rainy day in November. Even still we saw 7 bald eagles in a very short time. Parked across from the bistro and walked to the viewing area. Nice covered shelter with very interesting info. It is a beautiful spot.

Would have been better during the eagle run but this is still a gorgeous place for a peaceful walk. Will be going back in the late Fall to catch the eagles.

Bring a coffee or a bottle of wine and enjoy the beauty of Brackendale. Aside from Eagles swooping for fish you may also see seals, otters, bears, deer... Its one of my favorite walks.

I've been on this walk many times, in many seasons, and it's always a delight! There are many info signs to learn about eagles and the environment, there are usually eagles to be seen and the walk by the river is easy and lovely.

There are fewer eagles than in the past because there are fewer salmon for them to feed on. We are seeing eagles in many places where we didn't traditionally see them, so the eagles are still around, I think but just fewer. None-the-less, this is...More
