We visited in February and did hiking in the marsh. Very peaceful and scenic. We biked in the area in the fall and enjoyed both fall and winter seasons. The bird watching is excellent.
Amazing quantities of birds, especially waterfowl, but others as well. Lots of hiking trails, and a nice visitor center. This review is of the south side of the Marsh, which is state-owned. The north side is federal and also great to visit, although the south visitor center and area is one of the nicest parts to hike in. The north... 更多
Largest freshwater cattail marsh in the United States. Boating, hiking and commercial tours. Canoe and kayak rentals for the adventuresome. 200 species of birds pass through or live in the marsh's 32,000 acres. If you're interested in the history of the area make sure you visit the Explorium ($6) and the Education Center for wildlife information. Last time I was... 更多
We live very near the Horicon Marsh and never get tired of using the hiking trails, the auto route, etc. It is such a treasure to have nearby - and for anyone who is visiting the area, definitely take the time to visit this beautiful site and take a walk along one of the many trails or just use the... 更多
The area has multiple stops. There is a state of WI side to the south with an entrance area and walking in the southwest area accessible from town. There is another area to east that has a museum and trails around the actual marsh (the trails from city are more of a fringe area on hikes). There is another museum... 更多

There are barely words for this place. Took the trail from the Explorium visitor center, about an hour and a half leisurely walk, on a cloudy fall morning and met only three other people, but 4 sandhill cranes, a family of swans, and a bunch of ducks and geese. Peaceful, beautiful, and a breath from another age.
My husband and I have visited the Horicon Marsh about 10 times. We always hike alot around the marsh area and trails. It never fails that I somehow manage to step on a snake, which I don't see until my husband tells me after the fact. They are normally garter snakes and very small. Although on this trip, I almost... 更多
What a wonderful place to hike and learn. Paths through the marsh are well marked. These wetlands are important and are well managed. In addition to hiking, there are biking and canoe/kayak routes. We were lucky enough to see pelicans on our recent visit. Upon leaving we were given a detailed map that no only showed the biking trails but... 更多
