The Cranberry Glades is a nice, short walk. You can enjoy the beautiful scenery and learn all about the glades as you go.

I love this place. There's a boardwalk that takes you into the glades, there's trails that go around it, and there's a good visitor's center. Close by there are many, many more trials in addition to some amazing lookouts on the scenic highway. My group...More

Beautiful bog forest. Boardwalk takes you through the bog, over streams, through bushes, and under trees. Hope to return when the orchids are blooming. Parking spaces are close and toilets available. An easy walk, with a few lose and uneven boards. Views in every direction.

This is unique site for plants and worth the stop. Requires a little walking. No cost associated with it and is good for anyone interested in seeing new things.

We spent 11 hours driving and visiting various parks and this was my favorite. It was so beautiful in the snow! I would love to see it during the other seasons.

As you can see in the photo a boardwalk takes you down the trail to the glades featuring a variety of plants generally found in much colder climates. They even have a number of carnivorous plants. It is a very nice, relaxing walk which you...More

We did not see any signs about no dogs but some areas are very swampy so it's important to stay on Boardwalk
