The Bog Trail is just ONE of a handful of beautiful trails all nestled within the Waterloo Recreation Area, and all found in the Eddy Discovery Center. Check it out, go here, and explore the whole park! It's beautiful. Somewhere around 8-10 miles of trails in total.
I went closer to 5pm on a weekday and ran trails alone.

Had a great 1.2 mile walk with our two grandchildren, ages 4+5. They want to do the 4.2 mile next time.

Good loop hike for the cub scouts. Middle part of the loop runs along Mill Pond for a great view, they even provided a bench. Don't forget to stop into the Discovery Center. The staff there are great with kids and very knowledgeable about the local area. Check online for weekend classes "Michigan.gov/eddycenter".

This is close to my house and I run it all the time. It is one of about 7 trails at the Discovery Center. It is out and back and the end of the trail has a bridge that is currently under repair so it detours into a pine forest loop. All of the trails are 1 to 5 miles and all are good for hiking. The Discovery Center is a great place for kids.
