Cowles Bog Trail

Cowles Bog Trail


Imagine a hike through the vibrant colors of black oaks, red maples, birches, and white cedars, interspersed with tamarack pines.  The Cowles Bog Trail is a 4.7 mile trail through the lush wetlands and thriving ferns under the canopy of color.

Cowles Bog Trail is an ancient and untouched landscape at the foot of a steep sand dune.  It is home to over 400 species of plants, mushrooms and fungi, and has been designated an Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society.
