Description

The Marsh Loop Trail is approximately one mile long and completely encircles a pond that varies from nearly dry to more lake-like conditions depending on the year's rainfall. There are plaques providing interpretive information along the route. The trail is easy going, flat, and wide. You'll be treated to many good views of the pond along the trail, with two highlights being the boardwalk over a marshy section on the western end of the pond, and a brand-new observation dock on the southern part of the trail. Sections of the trail pass through hardwood forest and reforested pines.

The easiest way to access this part of Marsh Trail is to take the Parking to Marsh Loop Trail from the main parking area. Look for this trail on the southeasternmost corner of the parking area next to the main information kiosk. Cross the low traffic dirt road and head south on an old forest road. Look for the trail to depart the forest road on the east/left-hand side.

Navigation is very easy thanks to clear signs at each intersection. Every intersection is numbered, with arrows pointing in the direction of other intersections which are also numbered.
