Marsh creek was awesome. So many things to do. We brought our own kayaks but your you can show up and rent them as well as paddle boards. Bring a lunch and make a day of it! Can't wait to go back!

The first mile and a half is well maintained and has a lot of places to go in the water. Excellent for dogs. After that it's through the woods, which is generally well maintained. There was one point where the trail split and I took the way that was highlighted in red. it went through a field with crazy tall grass and not maintained at all. I would recommend taking the dotted blue portion on the way out instead.
