One of the best ways to view wildlife at Ten Thousand Islands is from our Marsh Trail and Observation Tower. This 2.2 mile round trip trek follows the only access trail found on the refuge. The first ¼ mile of the trail is paved, the rest being a wide gravel road. The 2-story observation tower includes wildlife viewing scopes, benches, and the first level is handicap accessible. The novice trail is available during all seasons.
