This is a small bog with MANY ladyslippers. You do have to hit it at the right time to see thousands. We were there this week and saw hundreds. Boardwalk is short, and the woodland trail is about 1/2 mile. Beautiful.

We stumbled on this while driving back roads. The small parking area is well maintained with crushed stone. The trail itself is a brand new wood boardwalk with wood curbing. An older secondary trail circle the area, but is not as nice as the brand...More
