Boughton River Water Trail
A marked 4.5km woodland trail follows along the north bank of the Boughton River. Access to the trail is located on the east side of the bridge in Bridgetown. Signage describes wildlife species and their habitats found in the riparian zone and estuary of the river. Interpretive signage on the early settlement and why the river was so important to the settlers.
The trail is moderately difficult with steps, a few short but steep hills and the odd low protruding root to step over. Sturdy walking shoes or hiking boots are recommended. It will take 3-4 hours to walk the whole trail and back. At the half way point a small island, called Johnson's Island, is surrounded by a salt marsh. A viewing tower is located at the south end for bird watching.
