This very popular interpretive trail features a multitude of plants such as wood sorrel, cinnamon fern, cotton grass, and various types of “bog bonsai,” plants that grow very slowly in the bog on account of its acidity. Moose, deer, and red fox have been seen on the trail. Red spruce and black (bog) spruce can also be seen along the trail. The major feature here is the raised bog with its sphagnum moss. Certain spots called “flarks” act like quicksand; a moose drowned at one flark in this bog a number of years ago. Trail Condition: dry, partly boardwalk.
