Saturday July 27 2019 Peacham Bog Loop from near Martin's Pond by Phyllis Rubenstein

On Saturday, July 27, 2019, a hot, sunny day, 4 people and one dog hiked a little over 2 miles along a forest road near Martin’s Pond to Peacham Bog. From the bog, we hiked about 4 miles back to our cars, part of which is on a woods trail which paralleled acres of wetlands created by beaver activity. At the bog we saw pitcher plants, some of which were in bloom, and blueberries beginning to ripen. Less than a mile from the cars, we heard rumbles of thunder and then enjoyed walking in the light rain, which followed. One can hike out and back on the forest road, or hike the loop, as we did. Either route is easier than the hike from the Nature Center in Groton State Park to Peacham Bog; however, the trail near Martin’s Pond is not marked. For a special treat, we stopped at Rainbow Sweets in Marshfield.
