Where else can one walk through a bog? The boardwalk has been almost completely redone with Trex planking and there are benches periodically so you can sit down to drink in the beauty that surrounds you.

This is a great opportunity to see natural beauty. The boardwalk is easily accessible and makes for a comfortable, flat, stroll. The signs are informative. The walk is a great photo opportunity. There are a lot of unusual plants.

Went for a long walk along the boardwalk with a friend on Sunday, and we were both amazed at just how dramatic and serene the bog is. I'd highly recommend this to anyone going near Bangor! (It's even a perfect place for an impromptu photoshoot!)...More
