The Watsonville Slough Trail follows its namesake waterway through a residential area of the city. It's part of a system of trails in a wetland area abundant with birds; you might see ducks, cormorants, pelicans, herons, egrets, hawks or many others. The trail ends at the entrance to Ramsay Park, which offers a nature center, restrooms, picnic areas, playgrounds and athletic facilities.
West of the trail, you'll find the Upper Struve Slough Trail
and the Ohlone Loop Trail
, which you can use to explore the neighboring Struve Slough.
Parking can be found at Landmark Elementary school (235 Ohlone Parkway) and Ramsay Park (1301 Main Street).
