Caribou Plain

Coordinates: (viewing platform for the bog): Lat 45.620507°N, Long 65.060011°W

Caribou-Plain

Description: A well-groomed, wheelchair accessible trail, with sections of boardwalk that pass through some very nice, mature stands of mixed forest, as well as past an old beaver pond where frogs and dragonflies abound in summer. The trail leads to a wonderful viewing platform at the edge of a bog lake and a domed bog.

Nature Notes: The domed bog is the “Caribou Plain” where these majestic ungulates were once found, at least as late as the 19th century. These days, the bog and surrounding forest are great places to see moose, an excellent variety of forest birds and some of the fascinating carnivorous plants that thrive in sphagnum bogs.
