You Can Practically Walk On Water At This Minnesota Peatland Bog

Iron Springs Bog Scientific and Natural Area (“SNA”) is a natural wonder in Minnesota. Its peatland habitat offers the feeling of walking on water – or perhaps air – as you traverse the pillowy ground and explore all this special place has to offer.

The otherworldly experience of walking on a bog is something all Minnesotans should experience at some time or another, and doing so at Iron Springs Bog SNA is even a bit more like hiking through a fairytale. While visiting Iron Springs Bog SNA, why not make nearby Itasca State Park – home to the Mississippi River’s headwaters – your base camp? You could even stay at Douglas Lodge if you prefer a few more amenities with your lodging options.
