Madison’s Cherokee Marsh Park- North Unit


7-1-13

I found I had neglected exploring a natural area less than two miles from home, Cherokee Marsh Park, North Unit. I have lived in this area for seven years but overlooked it. Not anymore, I see great potential for fall colors here. Follow me on my hike, here is a map.

Some parts of the path are on metal walkway just above the water of the marsh, I never got wet. The path also has two observation platforms. This is the first one. There were many wildflowers too.

You can see the Token Creek water tower from the path.

From the other observation platform you have a great view of the Yahara River.
