This hike starts in a good wildlife-viewing area and traverses a section of the Arizona Trail across Anderson Mesa to a scenic viewpoint overlooking Walnut Canyon. You’ll start near the shore of Marshall Lake, which is usually more of a marsh than a lake. Because of the excellent cover, it is a good area to view waterfowl and other wildlife. The best times are before sunrise and after sunset.
