“A sandy path past historic houses, a cranberry packing shed, cedar forest and around the cranberry bog to General Store.”— Allison Pierson
Pass the water pump building and continue down the cedar forest trail where worker's gardens used to grow. Around to the left you'll head into heavy sand to an overlook bridge of the wildlife-filled wetland around Cranberry Run where the original wild cranberry bog was the first to be cultivated in 1857. From there, runners will make their way out to the paved road and past a vista over the cultivated cranberry bogs. From this vantage, visitors will be able to see functional pump houses and the demonstration cranberry bog on the left where we pick cranberries in October, next to the parking lot.
Visitors can also navigate around the dry cranberry bog on the side closest to the Parking Lot. Bands play on the porch on Friday mornings and some weekends, and horse-back riders, bicyclists, trail runners, dog walkers and hikers use the trails.
Keep an eye out for cars and motorcycles on the roads, but they are usually pretty quiet. The village is managed by Whitesbog Preservation Trust, a non-profit, and the volunteers host fund-raisers and workdays to help keep the village up and educate the community on the history. More information can be found here. Feel free to share pictures with us using #whitesbog, and check in with the Whitesbog Preservation Trust.
