Cedar bogs is a 428 acre nature preserve. Not much like it Ohio. The path is a boardwalk which is needed since you are walking on a swamp in the middle of Ohio. There is a charge if you go during the daytime before 4pm.

Change of pace from the parks with dirt trails with roots, to walk on the boardwalk through the swamp. Shady mostly, but will still feel the heat if it's a hot day. We saw the beautiful lady slipper orchids in late May, an abundance, almost...More
