Cranesville Swamp 

Leaders: Sue Studlar and Sunshine Brosi

Cranesville Swamp is a boreal peat bog relic left behind from the Pleistocene Epoch. Nestled in a mountain valley bowl known as a frost pocket, colder conditions still prevail enough for boreal plants to survive. This Nature Conservancy gem is a National Natural Landmark.

Easy on boardwalk and short loop trails
