We love visiting this natural area, near Sun Prairie,we have been coming here since winter when we moved here , such a beautiful trail, to view sunset and bird watching in the summer, I can’t wait to see how this area changes to fall colors. Cherokee marsh -unit north located at the head of Madison’s lakes, 20min drive from Sun Prairie.
here is the adress Cherokee Marsh – North Unit6098 N Sherman Ave, Madison, WI 53704https://goo.gl/maps/1MaMc6vkYt92
The North Unit has 3.4 miles of trails along with a boardwalk and two observation decks.Usually when I want my toddler to hike and finish, take the trail on the left and hike all the way to the to the observation deck , she pretty much get less than a mile round trip , this is a wonderful trail all seasons in the winter I used to carry her and do a fast pace hike loop for 1.5 miles ,the trial is hilly and shaded very narrow .the trail is stroller friendly for families who are just looking to get out of the house .
you can seriously enjoy this area all year round. It gets busy around summer with school field trip . But you just have to know when to go.
We still have to Explore this park with a Bird & Nature Outing – a FREE, guided walking tour held on the first Sunday of each month, year-round from 1:30-3pm.
