All the trails at Crosswinds Marsh are very well maintained. I hike here at least several times a month year-round. There is a lot of wildlife here including deer, beaver, mink, coyotes and all sorts of birds including a resident nesting pair of bald eagles. The hiking is very easy. I don't think there is a hill higher than ten feet in the whole park. Parts of the trails will be muddy and/or wet to the point of impassable after heavy or persistent rains. Bring insect repellent in the Summer. Great place for birding.
The trail is a very easy but beautiful to walk on. There is a gravel horse trail u can walk on however I prefer the unpaved paths. The scenery is beautiful and wildlife encounters do occur. We walk out dog there at least 5 times a week.
Plenty of benches, a place u can fish. Our first day went walked the entire circumference of the marsh and logged 4 miles. The 2 mi loop on the description is wrong.
The first time I ever went here around April it was very nice and sunny. Trails were a little muddy but it was okay. Unfortunately the second time I went at the end of May there was a lot of ticks! They were all In my hair and on my clothes. Even all over my poor puppy. I don't know if it was just the day because it was hot but I will never come here again after that horrible experience
