You can walk the short distance to the bog and out, or combine a visit to the bog with the loop in this hike. Bring a picnic basket and relax, or hike to Wolf Rocks (see the Wolf Rocks Overlook Loop in this book). To begin this hike, walk past the restrooms to the trailhead sign, which points the way straight on the wide grass path to Spruce Flats Bog. Milkweed, daisies, and many ferns are growing along the first exposed portion of the trail. The path quickly narrows to a dirt trail where witch hazel, various maple and oak trees, and conifers are growing.
