The trail into to the bog is only 0.3 mile, one way. Watch for boreal birds along the trail. Listen for Woodpeckers and check each one out, as it may be an American Three-toed or Black-backed Woodpecker working on one of the many dead spruces near the trail. Most of the Wood Warblers can be found in the hardwoods by the parking lot or trail.
On the boardwalk at the end of the trail, have some food ready to feed the inquisitive Gray Jays. During breeding season until mid-July, look and listen for Olive-Sided and Yellow- Bellied Flycatchers, and Nashville Warbler, Northern Parula and Palm Warbler, and Lincoln’s, Swamp and White-Throated Sparrows. There are Great Blue Herons beyond the tall pines to the north. Tree Swallows and Eastern Bluebirds often use the old woodpecker holes in the dead snags along the brook.
During July and early August, the bog is beautifully covered with White Fringed Orchids and Grass-pinks.
