Horicon Marsh State Wildlife Area Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike gives several perspectives on the marsh, starting with a boardwalk along cattails and near open water, crossing an island popular for nesting birds, and climbing a hill with a view out over the entire marsh. While there are some forested segments here, much of the hike is level with the water on crushed-rock paths circling impoundments where waterfowl gather.

Any hike should start with a visit to the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center. Two floors of exhibits explain the origins of the marsh, its importance, and its residents (and migrants). The center overlooks the marsh and has a gift shop and an abundance of free information, such as birding checklists and park maps. You can get to the trails right out the back door."
