This is an excellent trail for black & brown bear, harbor seal, bald eagle, various gull viewing (July - Aug.) It is also a great spot for the fishing of Steelhead (April - May), cutthroat trout, and Dolly Varden, pink salmon (July - Aug). June 15 through September 15 is the only time there is access for fishing and fishing is only permitted from shore at trailhead. Along this trail is the Anan Wildlife Observatory, an open log style structure with two entryways and viewing ports, and two level deck offer views of creek, falls and visiting wildlife.
