This is an interesting area to explore. Bike and walking trails. Wildlife (including snakes....), birds (of course). Parking available. All weather pathway as well as more "rustic" paths.

This is a nice place to hike - especially in the early spring or late fall. (The insect population is greatly reduced during those seasons). The hiking trails are longer than what they appear so be prepared to do some walking.

I drive by Eagle Marsh every day on the way to work. We've stopped and hiked, taken pictures, and just experience nature and all of it's beauty. It's just a fun place to visit.

You will see a lot of birds, I even spotted an eagle, and Hawks. Very marshy so beware if it has just rained. Some trails will be muddy. It is also part of the bike trail.
