The Bog Meadow Brook Nature Trail is a two-mile trail following an abandoned railway through open marsh, wet meadow, and forested wetland habitats. There is a parking area on either end of the trail and benches and interpretive signs along the way. The diverse habitat, level terrain, and accessible location make for a very pleasing half-day of birding.
NOTE: There are two entrances to the trail. The Meadowbrook Road access
provides a shorter walk to the seating area overlooking the pond, and in spring or rainy periods, may be the only access to this viewing area as beaver activity affects the water level. If walking in from Rt. 29 at these times, be advised that calf-high waterproof footwear may be required!
