Cabell Marsh Trail

Length: 1.31 miles  |  Elevation Gain: 26.1 feet  |  

Mid-refuge trails traverse marsh habitats with numerous bird-viewing opportunities, including the ADA-accessible Homer Campbell Boardwalk.

Open April 1 to October 31. Trailhead is at the Cabell Lodge parking lot. A path to an observation deck and scope is open year-round. Here you can see an abundance of wildlife on the marsh. During the open season, head east from this deck onto the service road and turn right. At the junction there is a sign indicating directions to Beaver & Cattail Ponds and Mill Hill. This is the turn-around point; or you may continue to those trails. Cabell Marsh is hunting territory for bald eagles, osprey and other raptors. Look for coyotes, beaver, and black-tailed deer on the fringes.
