Description

The Swamp Trail runs through a low-lying, swampy area of forest. Trail conditions are frequently muddy and the trail is sometimes blocked by downed trees. There are some pretty also some large, exposed rocks along this trail that can make for a fun challenge, or annoyance, depending on your preference. Many of the most mud-prone areas have raised walkways or small bridges that will keep you dry. Access the Swamp Trail from one of two trailheads on the Old Carriage Road trail, or from the Ridge Trail via the Swamp-Ridge Connector.

Flora & Fauna

Swamp Trail is an excellent place to view wildflowers in the spring, and for birdwatching year-round. Skunk cabbage is a commonly seen plant.
