Takes about 20-30 min to get there from parking. We were there at the end of the summer. So not much to see. Water Lilies were already rotting, reeds no better. We will comeback in the spring or early summer. If you go left from parking there is a water fall about 10 min away pass the red bridge. Very nice.

Beautiful views and easy hike...just be aware of the parking situation. We saw sheriffs writing tickets for all those that parked illegally, so just be aware of that. Gladly I got a legal spot...phew no tickets for me.

Beautiful small place to take an easy stroll with great views of the local mountains and birds. Either season is great.

None of these reviews inform you that there is a rocky incline you need to walk to get to the marsh. Not terrible, probably not even the worst in the area, but definitely a workout and UNEXPECTED. I went fully anticipating an easy hike, but it wasn't a pleasant stroll through the woods. Then again the two hills back to the car were worse.

Very short run, more like a sightseeing tour! However going back up was a great 1/4 mile incline for a brief workout. The waterfalls were fantastic for pictures. Be sure to go up towards the red bridge away from marsh / parking lot to view waterfalls! The marshlands were also spectacular for viewing west point

The marsh starts as a trail through the woods and then a boardwalk to take you out into the middle of the tall grasses.
