LaPlatte River Marsh Natural Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"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."
