The Sand Point Marsh Trail is a half-mile wheelchair-accessible flat interpretive trail loop that traverses a beautiful wetland area. Most of the trail is a wooden boardwalk that crosses a rich variety of wetland habitats and old dune ridges. The rest of the trail is paved. This trail is one of the best places in the park for birding. Watch for frogs, turtles, and even beavers along the trail. Plant lovers will also enjoy this area with its many summer blooming flowers and fall berries. No pets allowed.

The Sand Point Marsh Trail begins across the road from the main Sand Point Beach parking lot near the end of Sand Point Road. The marsh trail can be experienced in all seasons since Sand Point Road is plowed in winter. Snowshoes are often necessary when there is deep snow on the trail.
