My daughter and I visited the bog around 5pm, and it was a mistake. There were ZERO other people there, next to ZERO animals/wildlife to observe, and MILLIONS of bugs looking to snack on us. I can't give this attraction a low score however - I can completely see how it could be magical, mystical, and enchanting as so many... More

Enjoyable trail skirting the bog and at times, crossing it. The trail has minimal elevation changes but includes numerous wooden plank areas to keep you out of the mud and sometimes water. Be warned that some of the wood is old and needs replacing, and some areas may challenge those with poor balance. It is not handicapped friendly, but should... More

One of the most beautiful places I have been too. I was surprised by how much it calmed and enchanted me. It looks small but that is deceptive. It is irregular in shape and so the walkway weaves into the woods and back to the water on and off creating a surprising path full of odd flora and fauna. I... More

This is a magical place. We come here for a respite from real New Hampshire hiking, which can be truly challenging and strenuous, which this pleasant approximately one mile walk most definitely is not. But what it is, is magical--the tranquility and quiet beauty is unsurpassed, and if you stop for a while to sit on one of the several... More

A real peaceful spot to commune with nature. The boardwalk needs repair but is useful in navigating the water crossings. There is a large beaver lodge in the pond.

This surprising little nature preserve offers a quick jaunt around a beaver pond with relatively easy footing most of the way. Kids will enjoy looking for the residents of the pond, and the views towards Stinson mountain are wonderful. Great spot for kids.

Was traveling for work in another office and saw the signs..a perfect lunchtime walk. I was able to quickly do the whole loop in about 45 minutes. There are alot of roots and some rocks along with alot of boards to walk across. Its a great place to see birds with some great bog views.

This bog is a nice area to visit. It has a nice easy 1 mile walk around the area. It has a point to walk to in the bog to view wildlife. However we did not see any at the time we went. There is a huge beaver dam to look at which was interesting
