Short very easy 30-45 minute hikes onto Boardwalk as well as on ground trails.

An elevated boardwalk crossing over a beautiful bog filled with many picture plants.. depending on time of year picture plants as well as other wild flowers are in bloom. Continue on boardwalk leading to an access to Fish River then back.

Parking lot is on opposite side of road where there are additional walking trails behind the parking area. These trails make circular loops onto themselves. Deer, rabbit and other animal trails run throughout.

Have never seen any poison ivy/oak and only the occasional garden snake.

Short but scenic trail boardwalked in its entirety. I wouldn’t want to walk down in that stuff otherwise. Lots of pitcher plants. The view of the water at the end is a nice ending point.
