Description

From the parking lot near the intersection of Kings Highway and Telegraph Road, you'll find a paved path that leads to the first observation deck overlooking the marsh. On the way there, you'll go through a short meadow with lots of wildflowers. The rest of the way is nicely shaded. Leave your bike on the rack near the first observation deck and take the Restoration Trail on the right to the second observation deck. It is a gravel path with lots more wildflowers.

Flora & Fauna

From both observation decks, you'll see wading birds and turtles, and if you are lucky, you may see a beaver or two since there are multiple beaver lodges out in the marsh.
