These wetlands serve an ecological purpose, which I applaud. The best way to view is to park and walk to the bridge over the Santa Ana river, and inspect from there. Many interesting birds and tidal animals can be observed. At low tide, the place...More

The wetlands and marsh areas were beautiful. Hiking allows to see water fowl, turtles, and fish. It is great exercise and a great way to be one with the surrounding nature. Highly recommended.
