Meadow Marsh Trail:  Right onto Craig road, over the little bridge about 150 feet there is a trail into the woods along the marsh following white blazes and/or orange disc markers to the right. Trail crosses Craig Rd and into the woods past a cellar hole and good size erratic, then across Hattie Brown Rd. Trail goes to the waters edge and back to Craig Rd. This last section is affected by high water at times and currently has some '08 storm damage. Nice walk in either a clockwise or counterclockwise (as described) direction.

Also pleasant walking up Hattie Brown Rd, a private road.
