Family Friendly A flat, easy trail in a mature forest.

Description

Trail 2 is a really nice, flat trail that runs through mature forest. It can be easily accessed from the Nature Center, campground, or by parking at the Wilson Shelter. On the east end, the trail crosses the Great Marsh via a boardwalk. The trail is often used in the winter for cross country skiing.

Hikers looking for a long hike can combine Trail 2 with Trail 10 for a great loop of the park.

*** Note: Please note that Trail 2's boardwalk on the east end may be impassable (and thus closed) due to high water. Please check with Park Rangers before setting out to connect to Trail 10.***

If you brave the missing sections, the boardwalk will take you past incredible views of the Great Marsh.
