“This hike will take you through the unique ecosystem that exists within the Quaking Bog in Theodore Wirth Park.”— Kristen Arendt
Family Friendly An easy loop through a varied ecosystem with lots to explore!
Sounds of frogs and the occasional songbird will take you out of the city and give you the sense that this place is far away from a metropolitan area. You'll see beautiful wetland flowers including the Minnesota state flower: the Showy Lady Slipper. Close by the Quaking Bog is the Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden. Here, you can see a range of flowers that can only be found at this park. This highly accessible and secluded hike should be a destination for any day-hiker.
