The Cranberry Bog Trail offers a fascinating look at the park's dry and wetlands. Join this interpretive hike and discover Proulx Marsh, the Cranberry Bog and famous A. Y. Jackson Lake.  

Cranberry Bog Trail begins at the Proulx Marsh. This marsh is the last in a chain of wetlands which empties into George Lake. In 1997, Proulx Marsh was almost covered in water, but today most of the water is gone. Technically Proulx Marsh isn't a marsh at all but what is commonly called a beaver meadow. It is possible that in 100 years Proulx Marsh will have to be called Proulx Forest.

The trail leads hikers past some of the park’s loveliest scenery. Bogs, marshes and swamps grow a variety of plants such as sundew, leather leaf, pitcher plan, and cranberry.  Beaver feed piles can be seen along the way.  Many birds frequent this trail’s habitats, and Blanding’s Turtles have been known to make occasional appearances in Cranberry Bog. Evidence of glaciation ranges from smooth rock surfaces to glacial striations and chatter marks.  A.Y. Jackson Lake, named after the Group of Seven artists, is striking – blue waters nestled against a backdrop of pink rock and evergreens – a lovely place to sketch or take a picture.
