Route Description

Hiking along the DeBoville Slough to Addington Point is a great outdoor experience that the entire family will love. The main concerns (if you can even call them that) along this trail are the wildlife species that call the marshlands home. You will likely come across numerous species of birds, smaller mammals, and even some bears, so be mindful of their habitat and admire them from a safe distance.

As mentioned, this is a great family trail along a paved path that is perfect for getting everyone outdoors. The beautiful wetlands are the perfect backdrop for a day hike at any point of the year, and the view of Pitt River and the mountainous backdrop make everything that much more serene. Hiking along the trail, you will arrive at Addington Lookout, the perfect vantage point for bird watchers and nature lovers to gaze out over the marshy landscape.
