This trail is very easily accessed from I-5, but within a few paddle strokes you are completely removed from any thoughts of traffic, boat ramps or even people. Putting in an hour or so before high tide allowed us access deep into the delta with a gentle, suporting current. Returning under slack tide conditions required only slightly more effort. This was a top notch trail and I look forward to more exploring of the Nisqually Reach area in the future.
The Nisqually Delta is a beautiful place to put in a kayak. I like to put in my kayak at Tolmie State park and kayak over to the delta area. It is a fabulous kayak extravaganza.
