  • An easy short walk around a cranberry bog. In the summer you can enjoy the turtles and other creatures. In the winter, it's a quick but invigorating walk after dinner.  more »
  • Gentle 39 minute walk, with some inclines in teees. Great for kids who want to scramble, walk on logs,etc. also turtles to see in water.  more »
  • I was pleasantly surprised to find this short, accessible, and pleasant walk tucked behind Bass Pro Shops at Patriot place. The next time you arrive early for a Patriot's game or to shop in the stores...  more »

  • This is a hidden gem at Patriot Place. I took my 4-year-old son here because I was seeking a little hike and this was perfect because it wasn't too long or too short, there was cool stuff to see, and there was a nice mix of sun and shade. About 3/4 of the walk is in the shade, so it's an appropriate place to visit even if it's hot. During the 1/2 mile walk we saw lots of water lilies, a few turtles sunning themselves, and a huge hawk which was hunting for prey in the cranberry bog. There is a really nice boardwalk through which you can navigate across the swamp (with the lilies and turtles). A nice place to stop for a photo. There are several signs which provide education about the bog and cranberry harvesting in general and the part of the walk which travels through the woods is pretty neat because there's just a little bit of terrain.
  • It is what it says it is: a nature trail that goes around/through a cranberry bog. It's pretty and the path is well built/defined.
  • Nice little walk to kill some time. Nothing to write home about. My kids love it.
  • I only gave one star bc I had to give rating to comment n want to ask others who've been if it is something worth doing ? Have family coming from fla maybe a gd idea or no?
  • Great little trail around the bog.
