Dayhike at Horicon Marsh - December 2014
Located in Dodge County on Wisconsin State Highway 49, Horicon Marsh is nestled between Waupun, Mayville and Horicon. Horicon Marsh provides a great hiking spot for migratory bird watching. There is no fee to hike at Horicon Marsh.
The trails are wide, easy to follow, well signed, and easy (non-strenuous) to hike. Although portions of the trail cut through stands of trees, much of the trail meanders through open prairie and marshland. Short and longer loops allow hiking to suit various levels of ability. Benches scattered along these trails make for comfortable bird watching. Maps of Horicon Marsh and more information about hiking, snowshoeing, paddling, bird watching, and more can be found on the US Fish and Wildlife Service's website.
