Runner Notes

The trail can get very wet in the springtime. Come prepared with a change of footwear for post-run. Trail is also very close to private homes at certain points so be sure to recognize the property lines.

Description

The Marsh Sanctuary has existed for decades but in the last 5-6 years, they have refocused on maintaining their 3-4 miles of trails. It is mostly an out-and-back course from Leonard Park.

It can be added on by crossing Sarles Street at the end and joining up with Merestead County Park which leads into Butler Sanctuary. The more adventurous can even head up to the Meyer Preserve via the paved Oregon Road.

The trail meanders through the wooded section behind a housing development, so stay on the trail and respect residents.
