Anderson Marsh Loop

Loop • 2.8 mi • 152 ft

This hike is an easy stroll through prime bird and wildflower habitat and is especially impressive in the springtime when the meadows are in full bloom. Birders will find a wealth of species, but take note: They are best viewed in the morning. Archeology buffs will also be rewarded on this hike. The park was once the site of a Pomo Indian village and has yielded useful archeological information. A 19th Century ranch house, typical of early European settlers, serves as a museum and visitor center for the park. Terrain: Mowed meadow, boardwalk, and dirt path through grassland, oak woodland, riparian woodland, and freshwater marsh.

Not a great hike for the summertime. It's hot, dry, and dusty. Would like to try this hike again in the springtime.
