Pretty walk thru the bog. Be careful when the boardwalk is wet. It's very slippery and the boardwalk itself could use some shoring up in places.

A beautiful walk through the bog - my sons LOVED it! September was a great time to go because they weren't any mosquitoes. The dock was a little rocky in some places but we were still able to use our stroller for the baby.

Short walk, easy walk, but a gorgeous variety of plants, trees, flowering things and a cool view of the river. Really an awesome easy thing to do.

This amazing place is so nostalgic and beautiful. I am a little biased because it's named after my father but such amazing ecology is had here. Bogs are truly incredible ecosystems that have so much to be discovered.

Short little walk in a bog -- saw some fun wildlife there. But I would avoid it in the evening -- to avoid mosquitoes.
