The entrance to the Carpinteria Salt Marsh is located on Ash Avenue in Carpinteria. From there the path takes you through the wetlands by moving inland before crossing Franklin Creek and eventually coming to an end as the path hits Sandyland Cove Rd. From here you can turn around to return to Ash Avenue.
Be sure to take a minute to check out the amphitheater and interpretive signs along the path.
