When I was in the 6th grade in Oneonta Bugbee School, our class made a field trip to the Emmons Pond Bog. We all were a bit skeptical of visiting a bog (especially the girls!), but we were definitely surprised! Our teacher was a font...More

I've visited this place many times over the past two and a half decades, and it's always a relaxing trip. My wife and I took a side trip there on our honeymoon, and she loved it. The grade is mostly flat. There is a beaver...More

This hike does not look like much from the road, but once you get past the beginning of the trail, it is truly wonderful. A small waterfall, the big, and plenty of trail space. A very nice, easy hike with some good scenery!

With apologies to those who live in the area, this place is truly in the middle of nowhere, marked by one, albeit, nice sign, and has a grassy "parking" lot the size of a standing garage. Ours was the only car on a warm, Sunday...More

Since we like to hike locally, we thoroughly enjoyed the diverse path & terrain of this path. First it's through a field like meadow with wet areas, then into the woods. The path encircles a very interesting peat bog. We enjoyed it very much!

Bogs are fascinating places! There are so many different, fascinating sights on the up close and personal hike around this particular bog. Today's hike was a warm, late winter hike. The trail was exceptionally wet and muddy. We were grateful that we had on waterproof...More

This is a very nice trail around a big peat bog/pond - not only a great hike, but an unusual environment. Plan to spend an hour or two, and if you're adventurous, follow the outlet stream down the waterfall and then look back at it....More

I apologize, I didn't see this question until now. This trail is NOT wheelchair accessible. It is a fairly rugged trail. There used to be a boardwalk, but from what I understand, a beaver dam caused the bog to flood and... More
