We stopped at the viewing location off Government Road on the off chance we would see some eagles... to our surprise and delight we saw 30+ bald eagles either on the river bank feeding on salmon carcasses or perched in the trees. What an incredible experience.

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.

A much needed tranquil area to walk along the river, we didn't expect to see much wildlife but wow what a surprise. Sat by the river we saw salmon leaping, seals, Eagles and even a bear. There is a lovely place to eat which is friendly and not pricey, the locals are friendly and stop to chat. In Dec the... More

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 a must stop. Those eagles that are around are beautiful to watch. We are so... More

We walked the local river trail in February, knowing we would not see eagles, but hoping just the same. Just the walk is fabulous, with all the beauty of nature right around.

The Eagle Reserve is easy to get to and the trail to walk along the river is a beautiful winter scene. We went twice but missed the eagles swooping down to feast on the salmon. Instead, we saw eagles sitting in the trees nearby! Incredible birds! There is an informative display about eagles, thank you, BC!
