Overview

This is a short loop that combines the Marsh Trail and Marsh Road to form a short run excellently suited for wildlife viewing and birding. Marsh Trail includes partial boardwalk as well as birding huts along the trail. This trail is family friendly!

Description

Park at the visitor center in Canoe Creek State Park. Head down the hill and make a right turn onto the boardwalk start of the Marsh Trail. Follow the trail past several birding huts. The huts make great points for taking photographs.

After the huts, the trail makes a left turn away from the lake and joins up with Marsh Road where you'll then make a left turn and follow it back to where you began. This is a perfect trail for birding.
