This was my first visit, so I really didn't know what to expect. It was a beautiful day and a very nice walk. There are several little offshoots with benches so that you can stay awhile and just enjoy the views and sounds of nature. We saw fat little squirrels that would come right up to you, which means they... More

If your a nature lover this Nature Preserve is a must see. There were a variety of birds ranging from Robins to Red Headed Woodpeckers. The squirrels and chipmunks were so friendly that they would eat peanuts and sunflower seeds right from you hand. The trails are a mix of paved and dirt but both are well maintained. It is... More

Not quite in the Magee Marsh category, but well worth a visit. The road was more productive than the dirt paths, perhaps because of better visibility.

This is a very well maintained area with a paved path that is even plowed during the winter. Approx. one mile to lake Erie with lots of nature to view. This is an excellent bird watching area as it is situated on their flight path in the spring and fall. This was once the old entrance to Cedar Point until... More

This is a very nice to place to take a walk. But it is a long walk. I would love to see them put in a bike path on each side of the walkway. Not everyone is capable of making it all the way to the end of the path.

This is a wonderful place to go and explore nature. The asphalt walkway is wide to accommodate everyone. There are areas off the "beaten path" with information of the flora/fauna. There is a boardwalk that leads to a beach area where you can see the roller coasters of Cedar Point. Just a very pleasant stroll.
