Nestled in a neighborhood within the town of Greensboro is this amazing little piece of paradise. The heavily wooded area is more like a forest than a garden, but either way, it’s remarkable and among my favorites. Wildlife and birdlife are abundant, and the variety of trees is phenomenal. Stunning views of a small lake are obtained from an overlook, and benches are built into the boardwalk so you can take it all in. The Bog Garden Trail begins as a wide cement path and enters a thick, dense forested area that keeps you shaded the entire hike. Paths weave throughout this wonderful wooded nature preserve, so it’s easy to get turned around. However, the area is small, so if you do get mixed up, you’ll quickly regain your bearings. This compact patch of forest truly is a hidden gem. Wildlife is abundant, and the property is a designated bird sanctuary.
