I love coming to Sheldon's Marsh because of the paved walk way. It makes it ideal for walks when it recently rained or snowed. The marsh is on both sides of you and the chances to see aquatic life and birds is high. Turtles are...More

Great natural resource for birding, walking, etc. It does have a shoreline to see shorebirds etc. Trails are paved and stoned.

I always walk here when we stay at Sawmill Creek Resort. Good paved walking path. Unfortunately, people can't seem to read the signs and feed the chipmunks and squirrels, so they are exceptionally friendly. Have seen many deer in the past.

Great place for a walk. It is about 2 miles total if you stay on the road. There were other paths off the road. Beautiful look at Lake Erie.

We stopped here on a day trip to Huron, and we had a fantastic time. We saw turtles, snakes, swans and geese. We walked the beach, and found the best stones to skip. The pathway is really nice and it's pretty easy to get around.
