Fodor's Expert Review Potter Marsh

Greater Anchorage Body Of Water/Waterfall

Sandhill cranes, trumpeter swans, and other migratory birds, as well as the occasional moose or beaver, frequent this marsh about 10 miles south of Downtown on the Seward Highway. An elevated boardwalk makes viewing easy, and in summer there are salmon runs in the creek beneath the bridge. An old railroad service building just south of the marsh operates as a state park office. Out front is an old engine with a rotary snowplow that was used to clear avalanches.
