Wetlands Trail


The trail is generally flat walking with some wetter sections best explored in early spring and late fall. The trail may be closed in summer to protect a nesting colony of great blue herons.

This walk explores mostly the norther section of Backus, though it doe briefly loop below the Sand Road. For those who want to make a combined walk with the Sugar Bush trail, it's a matter of following this trail through the section south of the Sand Road and then following the directions for the Sugar Bush Trail.
