Where: Click the link below to find out!

Event Description:
Distance: Approx. 3.6 miles possibly a bit longer with the old Bay Shore pier

Undeveloped bay front property that has evidence of human habitation that goes back 9,000 years! Wow, We'll start at the parking lot and proceed on the white blazed trail that is gravel and grass toward the observation deck overlooking the Black Marsh. From there it's a stroll down to the Muskrat trail and on the toward the beach. Looping around to the Beaver Pond trail and up to the wetlands loop puts us back in the parking area. This trail has slightly more shade than sun, so appropriate sunscreen is advised.


There is a use fee for this park $3.00 and there are portable facilities at the parking area. Restrooms, water and concessions at the visitor center from 11-4 Wed-Sun
