Very convenient place to go for a nice walk near the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo, or enjoy a nice trail run. Surprisingly quiet, the most noise I usually hear is the whistle from the train that circles the lake, which always puts a smile on my face.

somewhat restricted temporarily due to Dupont road upgrade but should return to its outstanding trail.

This trail stays too wet to mow till late June, so plan on hiking through water. When unmowed, it’s hard to follow and stay on the trail.
It does go through the center of the marsh and once off the towpath, it seems like you are out in the middle of a huge wetland.
Lots of cool flowers, trees (on the small size) and birds to see.
A short easy hike.

Bring bug spray...mosquitos like this park. Nice ravines, streams, ponds. Good to have the GPS trail map b/c lots of trails interconnect... lots of choices...all choices seem good, but good to know where you are so u can stay roughly on the right path.

nice very nice

me gusta estar y correr con la naturalesa y repirar el oxigeno linpio me encanta

wildlife sounds and sights were awesome. northern loop is barely there...seemed to be more of reeds pushed down by a 4wheel drive vehicle. (and ended up taking me way northwest through swamp, ankle deep water and muck, until finally met up with power line trail). southern loop of this hike is good, level gravel and mowed ground. When I did this loop at 7am, I saw lots of deer including a huge buck. lots of snowy egrets and blue herons too.

nice walk. The beginning suggests u walk up one side of a busy street and down the other side. Not a big fan of that so weaved my walk through figure 8s through park and added fort and art museum grounds at end.

loud highway noise to start (runs parallel to I69). once you turn from the highway, lots of birds can be seen and heard! even saw 2 swans. lots of wildflowers and butterflies. muddy trail in some parts.

From out of town, found the parking lot mostly empty and the course was clearly marked and mostly paved. Ran a couple of laps.

This was my first time really hiking and I loved it here! There are so many trails and so much to see! I will need to go back several times to see it all.

It is a busy walking and and biking loop. Definitely an easy walk not moderate by any means. It is well maintained.

This place was very pretty. I imagine it is what people think of when they think of going on a hike. Very beautiful tonight at sunset. :)

Parts of Eagle Marsh require boots or chest high waders unless hiked when the marsh is totally frozen over. Beautiful in the winter. VERY water logged in the spring and summer.

nice little after after dinner walk

Family hike Sat before Christmas Eve. Light snow cover. Hilly trails. Fun w Gary and Zoe

Not a bad hike. I did find the sign posts confusing and any online maps didn't seem to match up with the actual trails. Unfortunately I did see a lot of trash wherever there was water.

I used it for trail running. Had a great time. Not over trafficked, and had plenty of stuff for forest free running.
