Carr Inlet: Horsehead Bay, Cutts Island State Park, and Kopachuck State Park Professional Review and Guide

"If you live south of Seattle, this is a short, easy trip, ideal for those with limited saltwater experience, or for families. Distances between stopovers are not long, and there are plenty of shore attractions and beaches with warm water for wading and swimming during the summer months.

The route can be altered or shortened if weather is inclement. Camping is available at Kopachuck State Park or the Cascadia Marine Trail site located there. The beach is expansive at low tide and is known for ample sand dollars."

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.
