Trail Description

Trail Description

This 2-2.5 hour hike to a crashed World War II bomber is extremely muddy but worth the work. Make sure you take enough water and food for the day and a compass and GPS to find your way out. It's easy to get turned around in the boggy areas. Follow the trail in the from the road, through an abandoned building, down the hill and through the marsh. The marshy area is usually marked by flagging and rope. At the end of the marsh you'll find the plane on the hillside.
