Campbell River Loop Professional Review and Guide
"There is much here to interest children—who is better at spotting frogs and tadpoles?—and the walk could be combined with a picnic at either of the park entrances. Crossing the marsh in summer, you are surrounded by wild roses, hardhack and ninebark shrubs; branching stalks of water parsley vie with skunk cabbage and sedges; yellow water lilies find a toehold and cattails poke their heads from the sea of greenery. Don’t be startled if a great blue heron suddenly takes to the air, croaking its annoyance at being disturbed—a sound that briefly silences the foraging songbirds. As the hunter settles again beside a reedy channel, birdsong resumes. Highlights: Woodland, stream and meadow; wildflowers, sedges; herons, songbirds; Douglas squirrels. Terrain: Flat. Boardwalks and smooth trails, suitable for wheelchairs."
