The path is relatively flat and suitable for all skill levels but always remember to wear safety gear.

During winter months or after heavy rainfalls, parts of the bike paths may become inaccessible due to flooding conditions.

Children under 14 must have adult supervision when cycling in this area; helmets are required by law.

Please respect other users' space on multi-use pathways - slow down near walkers and horse riders.

Bike rentals aren't provided at the location so visitors need to bring their own bicycles.

The park offers a variety of birding opportunities with over 100 species to spot. Birdwatchers can observe waterfowl, songbirds and raptors in diverse habitats including wetlands, grasslands and cottonwood forests.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
July 25 a wonderful place to visit by Elaine Bale
park review stars; one to five On July 24 we had a family gathering. There were families from Calf, & Wash here as well as locally. We needed to fill water balloons, & the park rangers opened a closet for us to fill them, & returned later to check to see if we needed to fill more. They also helped another member of our group to put the stakes in the ground for a game to of horseshoes. The East shelter was reserved for the day by us, & when group of people came in & tried to take over the shelter the park rangers took care of that quickly & with professional respect towards both groups. Thank you Eagel Island Park Rangers for a wonderful day!
