Event Description:

The hike will walk through a restored prairie to the newly installed 200 foot boardwalk out into Elkhart Bog. Before recent installation of the boardwalk, Elkhart Bog was inaccessible to the public. Visitor facilities are still being developed, so this may be the first opportunity for the public to experience the bog. The boardwalk passes through pin oak and buttonbush swamps and across a spatterdock pond to the floating mat of the bog. The bog is a 60 acre floating mat of sphagnum moss and grass like plants that floats on top of an ancient glacial pond.

Directions - Park in the parking lot of Elkhart East Church, 21851 CR 4, Bristol, IN 46507. From the intersection of CR 17 and the Toll Road take CR 17 north as it curves to the right. After the first curve, turn left onto the short spur to CR 4 and follow CR 4 west to the church.

Wear appropriate clothing and footwear, bring water, sunscreen, and bug spray.

Bring binoculars and a hand lens, if you have them.

No restroom facilities.
