Eden Landing trails, kayak launch, shorebirds and saltworks ruins

Eden Landing Ecological Reserve offers new hiking, kayaking and sight-seeing options. Along with a segment of the Bay Trail, the Reserve now hosts a 3-mile seasonal loop trail around shorebird ponds and 19th Century salt-making sites. An all-year trail passes saltworks ruins, where a boardwalk and panels allow indepth viewing and learning. A spur route ends at marshes near the edge of the Bay. Another spur reaches historic Archimedes screws, windmill pumps used to move water for salt-making. Because of potential wildlife impacts, no dogs are allowed on trails (additional provisions apply for waterfowl hunts). A new accessible launch, with a drop-off loop, provides Bay access for kayakers and other non-motorized small boats. Limited hunting is allowed at Eden Landing.
