East Street Bogs

The East Street Bogs Loop is a 1.8-mile loop that features active cranberry bogs, wetlands, reservoirs, and forested upland, with an expansive trail network also known as the Duxbury Bogs. The 198-acre property offers a total of 4.5 miles of trails. These are primarily wide dirt roads that encircle the cranberry bogs, but there are also some narrower woodland paths.

The Bay Circuit Trail that runs north-south through the property is just under a mile in length. These trails are rated easy-to-moderate hikes, varying from a cart path to bog ditches and dykes, with some trails featuring steep topography. There are narrow paths that lead through the abandoned bogs.

This property was purchased by the Town of Duxbury to preserve Duxbury’s agricultural heritage. In addition to the cranberry bogs, hikers will pass through White Pine, red and white oak, and wetlands shrubs. The bog reservoir also offers habitat to a wide variety of waterfowl, especially during migration. These have become meadow-like and create a safe haven for a variety of birdlife, such as blue heron and osprey.
