Alfred Bog Walk is an massive 10,378 acre bog located near Alfred and Plantagenet, Ontario. This provincially significant wetland consists of a high quality peat bog (the largest in Southern Ontario), marshland, and swampland. The region has been designated as an Area of Natural and Scientific Interest as well as a Class 1 Wetland. The peat bog has undergone over 10,000 years of formation and is now home to exceedingly rare habitats and beautiful scenery. Alongside the rare plant species that thrive here, many rare bird and mammal species have made their home in the region, including the Spotted Turtle, Black-Backed Woodpecker, Northern Hawk-Owl, and many others. Visitors can hike the short 0.3 km trail, or take a leisurely stroll along the boardwalk. Keep your eyes peeled for the healthy resident moose population!

I have a trailer on the water every weekend in the summer. There are lots of great memories made there.
