"Life of the Marsh Trail" Assateague Island Things to Do Tip by PinkFloydActuary
Assateague Island Things to Do: 11 reviews and 23 photos
The first trail upon entering the park, but we saved this for last (mainly because I missed the turn off for it.) The first tip - reapply your repellent again. Like the others, this trail is a loop trail that is about a half mile long. This one is mostly raised boardwalk through the marsh, mostly open marsh land (as you can see from the photos.) Those with smaller ones need to keep an eye open, as the boardwalk has no real railings in most places, and you're open to the water areas. About midway through the trail, you can take a small detour off to an overlook, which also has a brief staircase down to the bay. From a hiking standpoint, this one is pretty easy, and I found the scenery the best of the three.
