The trail features access to a bog and to Mud Lake with abundant wildlife. Sphagnum moss formed a 150-180 cm (5-6 ft) thick layer of peat over an open body of water after the glaciers receded. This acidic bog supports sheep laurel, sphagnum moss, and stunted tamaracks. Deer and moose frequently travel to this watering spot. Ducks, muskrats, and frogs can be viewed from the large observation deck with benches. Trail Condition: some boardwalks, some woodchips.
