Super Nice, very easy unique trail. The boardwalk makes a unique path, and the Heath is it's own little world.

Gorgeous day. Easy parking. Informative marquee revealing how the land was formed. Trail is flat and easy. Pretty flowers (see photo). Almost surreal, like being in another world,, walking across what used to be ponds now filled in with reed moss and then sphagnum moss on top. We assumed they must have hauled a generator in there to complete that long walkway. Lots of work! We enjoyed it, and it wasn't very buggy. Some sunny stretches but also some shady areas. Nice easy 2.2 miles.

The end of the trail was a tad confusing. It was a beautiful day!
