Mud Lake Bog is a 1 mile out and back trail located near Niles, MI and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from March until January.
Absolutely gorgeous. I loved all the trails and art. Loved how there were benches throughout the trails and walkways. Just beautiful. Our little fox baby loves every minute of it as well. Definitely going back soon.
This is a pretty big area but the trails and boardwalk barely venture past the first 25% of the bog. The area is known for the carnivorous plants and easy access to the Purple Pitcher Plant that eats flies. Definitely a unique spot. Surrounding the bog though, there is obvious invasive plant species problems. The boardwalk is kind of short and in need of repairs. There are overgrown areas but that just means that this place is under utilized. Looking for solitude and something different? This might be walk for you. Also a great spot to fund American Woodcocks in April/May.
