We visited a local pottery place and found this place during a google search. So glad we did, great Fall walk with the family and the dog. No bug spray needed which for a bog was very different. Not a good trail for the elderly with any walking issues but what fun for all of us in the mud and planks. Great nature and beauty all around. Stunning views and pictures. The volunteer staff member was fantastic and led us out to the trail after a quick visit to the nature center. Great map and info for the walk. Will definitely be back.

Great nature trail around the bog. There are wooden planks in places where it is very muddy. There is also a floating bridge that was fun to cross.

This is the second year that we visited the bog. We love the boardwalks without any rails. You can really see into the water. This year we spotted a pickerel swallowing a frog! We borrowed binoculars from the nature center and used them to watch a heron that had landed across the bog. We would visit every day if it were closer!

It's not a large, over-crowded amusement area, but it is a small, well-managed wetlands. A great place for families to explore wetlands and what they mean to the environment. A little bug spray would be recommended ... and wear waterproof shoes just in case.

My daughter and I visited the bog around 5pm, and it was a mistake. There were ZERO other people there, next to ZERO animals/wildlife to observe, and MILLIONS of bugs looking to snack on us. I can't give this attraction a low score however - I can completely see how it could be magical, mystical, and enchanting as so many reviewers stated. I just blame our poor timing. We should have made this a morning trip.

Enjoyable trail skirting the bog and at times, crossing it. The trail has minimal elevation changes but includes numerous wooden plank areas to keep you out of the mud and sometimes water. Be warned that some of the wood is old and needs replacing, and some areas may challenge those with poor balance. It is not handicapped friendly, but should be very easy for people without challenging conditions.

Bugs were minimal, despite the water and mud, and wildlife is certainly possible as well as interesting plant life. Most of the trail offers shade, and several benches offer resting points. Less crowded than most trails in the National Park area, and worth a visit for those who enjoy such places.

One of the most beautiful places I have been too. I was surprised by how much it calmed and enchanted me. It looks small but that is deceptive. It is irregular in shape and so the walkway weaves into the woods and back to the water on and off creating a surprising path full of odd flora and fauna. I have not spent much time by a bog, so the shapes of the leaves and flowers were interesting, as was the life growing in the water.

This is a magical place. We come here for a respite from real New Hampshire hiking, which can be truly challenging and strenuous, which this pleasant approximately one mile walk most definitely is not.

But what it is, is magical--the tranquility and quiet beauty is unsurpassed, and if you stop for a while to sit on one of the several benches scattered along the path, you will start to notice how teeming with all manner of interesting wildlife it is.

Today we saw a flock of goldfinches, red-winged blackbirds, numerous juncos, and a magnificent great blue heron. We heard many more bird calls than we saw. We also walked past a beaver lodge, as clearly laid out as any good architect's own home.

The plant life is amazingly varied, with stretches of marsh grasses among the regular (mostly white pine) wooded paths, and plenty of wild flowers and blueberry shrubs at every turn. Just lovely.

We visited Quincy Bog several times during the summer, and once this fall just before we left New Hampshire for the season. It's very different in the fall, but just as beautiful and, well, magical.

Highly recommend this jewel of a nature walk. And love those beavers and their hard-worked lodge!

A real peaceful spot to commune with nature. The boardwalk needs repair but is useful in navigating the water crossings. There is a large beaver lodge in the pond.
