I didn’t see much because of the winter storm that had come through but I will be back. I still enjoyed looking around.

was fishing in the area and buddies decided to work in some duck hunting. Was able to get licences and hunt this public area. Great ponds and habitat, had a good day.

Especially for bird watchers, this stop is worth taking. In the early morning or late afternoon, chances of seeing caribou are greater. Birds frequent the estuary all day but seem to come in to feed in the later afternoon. The walkway has interesting fact boards to help with identifying the birds.

There are 3 locations you can stop on this road to do some viewing. the closest to the town of Kenai is the Marina. There you will see the small harbor and Kenai River entrance which feeds into the harbor. The tides here are substantial 20' to 35'. at times the harbor is all but gone. The 2nd location is a pullout that provides a 360-degree panorama of the estuary, there is a platform to walk out on and on a clear day, you get a magnificent view of the Aleutian Mountain Range across the Cook Inlet. The 3rd location is just on the opposite side of the Kenai River Bridge. That provides you best view and access to the Kenai River itself. Be careful during low tides because the bank is muddy and you could get stuck in it and drowned when the ocean tide rises (it raises the rivers banks too). As to animals, there is a herd of Reindeer (Caribou) that romes the estuary. You can also see a moose or 2 near the road generally close to or in the trees at either end of the Bridge access road. Eagles and Seagulls are often seen. Bears not usually seen in this area.

Several locations are available for pull over and parking in order to view the wetland areas in Kenai. This rich mixture of the salt and fresh waters becomes the nursery for the wildlife many flock here to see in their adult form. The viewing areas offer an opportunity to see birds, mammals, and fish in a natural setting. Birders may wish to spend some time here as numerous species were seen by us in just a few minutes.
