Hudeman Slough Nature Trail

Hudeman Slough Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Napa-Sonoma Marshes Wildlife Area encompasses over 13,000 acres of mainly abandoned salt evaporation ponds. The high salt content in the ponds killed the trees, leaving visible skeleton forests. The ponds are part of an extensive restoration program that is in the early stages of development. The goal of the restoration effort is to reclaim former tidal marshes that were diked many years ago. The sizeable expanse of marshland is a productive estuarine ecosystem, providing habitat for millions of birds. It is an important wintering habitat for Pacific Flyway waterfowl. Most of the wildlife area is accessible only by boat or footpaths. Levees offer foot access and are regularly used by fisherman, hunters, photographers, bird watchers, bikers, boaters, and hikers. This hike loops through Hudeman Slough on the north end of the wildlife area."
