LaPlatte River Marsh Natural Area Professional Review and Guide
"A short nature walk to varied wetlands from the mouth of the LaPlatte River. The riverbanks, marshes, wooded wetlands, and duckweed-choked backwaters that abound in this natural area won’t fit everyone’s notion of “scenic,” but hikers attuned to the ways of nature will find beauty in this trail. Birders intent on expanding their list of waterfowl should especially enjoy this path tracing a channel of the LaPlatte River from its mouth on Shelburne Bay. Across the road from a fishing access parking area, a trampled path wends through the grass of a damp field, curls left under power lines, and enters thickets bordering the river on your left."

one of my favorite trails of all time. great single track and good short downhill section. i am there at least 4 days a week with my friends. great to practice time trials on. you can also go swimming in the lake at the end of the ride. 10-20 mintute loop or 20-40 minute loop. also a very very hard climb. lots of fun!!!
