A short boardwalk loop offers an up-close look at the unusual quaking bog. Then the hike takes a turn around the largest of three trail loops in this state natural area. The terrain isn’t very hilly and offers some stretches of forest, prairie, and wetlands as well as three designated observation points, including a marsh blind. Near the end of the loop is a trail across Brandenberg Road to 2 more miles of trail: a woodlands loop and a prairie loop.
