Description [Suggest Changes]

Run above the wetlands of Wapato on the north side of the park. A large pipe transverses above the wetlands, with a well-made trail atop. This trail tours the treetops and is an unusual experience, a true delight to find in an urban area.

See the park's website for the event calendar and more details.
