At an elevation of 1800 feet, Hawley Bog resembles the cold bogs farther north. This unique habitat is home to three insectivorous plants, as well as plants left behind by the glaciers, such as cottongrass. We'll learn the characteristics that make a wetland a bog and enjoy a fall morning walking along the boardwalk.
Directions to Hawley Bog:
From Greenfield or Route 91, take Route 2 West past Shelburne Falls (about 15 mi.).
Take a left onto Route 8A South and go over the bridge. Take a left onto Hawley Road, then an immediate right onto East Hawley Road.
Drive uphill for about 4 miles until you reach the bog's entrance trail on your right, roughly across from Forget Rd (and a red house).
Please wear sturdy waterproof boots or shoes.
