Great Marsh Trail

Natural Areas: Great Marsh Trail

Great Marsh Trail is well named. Its oft-soggy tread skirts and crosses large marshy areas. Expect wetland vegetation, birds, muskrats and, in warmer weather, mosquitoes. One of the best locations along the lakeshore to get immersed in a marsh ecosystem.
