Take the time to walk up and down the boardwalk. You can talk to the locals while they fish from the side. Learn a little history and see how engineering has changed the environment.

Beautiful place to walk, but if you get hungry, there's nothing to buy, as the mall forces you to go inside to buy food. The trail system lacks food sales...

We all enjoyed walking the board walk and seeing the sunset. I loved the attractions along the way - the tent, the bears, and the sculpture. It is a nice time to walk and view the boats on the water.

Very clean with garbage cans easily accessible for elimination bags while dog walking. Beautiful view of ships and landing floater planes. Ducks are also very friendly and personable.

This is an excellent place to take a walk. We walked it during the day and in the evenings and felt totally safe. There are places to stop and sit for a bit and plenty of views and sights along the way. It's spotless and was one of my favorite parts of Sault Ste Marie.

I don't know if I have walked the entire length of this attraction, but nevertheless it was a beautiful stroll on the water during a warm fall day. Plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the view of the St. Mary's river.

Nice walk around, connects with the hub trail. It was breezy day so make sure to have appropriate wear.

We just loved the boardwalk! It's so scenic. The fall colours were seen from many spots. Quite a few spots that have benches to rest at!
