Cutler Marsh

You are here Home  > Birding Areas >  Cutler Marsh

Cutler Marsh was created by the shallow water of the Bear River at the head of the Cutler Reservoir. It is best viewed from the bridges where roads cross the marsh, and the boat docks (restroom here), or by canoe. Expect many waterfowl and shorebirds. A 2.5 mile loop trail starts and ends near Benson Marina (on 3000 North) and includes a foot bridge over the old railroad trestle to the south. Look for American Bittern, White-faced Ibis, Snowy Egret, Cattle Egret, Great Blue Heron, Northern Harrier, Common Yellowthroat, American White Pelican, and Sandhill Crane. Habitat includes freshwater marsh, open water, shoreline, wetland pasture and some riparian areas. Visit this site any season but winter.

There are various ways to access the marsh, but in general you can take US Hwy 30 west from Logan for about 2.5 miles. There is a boat launch on the south side of Hwy 30 or you can turn north on 3200 West or State Hwy 23 to access the marina and other viewing sites. GPS coordinates are for the Hwy 30 boat launch.
