Locals call the dog park the “Cherokee Marsh Dog Park,” but the park, which extends far beyond this popular dog park, includes a long hiking trail along the North Side of the Cherokee Marsh. Fed by the Yahara, the river and surrounding marsh reach all the way to Token Creek. Parking for the trail is available in a small lot off the frontage road – Catfish Court. This road is gravel and often ungraded – prepare for a short but bumpy drive. Follow the trail along the west side of the dog park and back into open fields and small wooded copses.
