Patriot Place… known for Gillette Stadium, the home of the New England Patriots, and the sprawling complex of stores around it. Tucked away behind the Bass Pro Shop is a nature trail. The trail is short and easy to walk. This is a good trail for all ages as it is relatively flat. As soon as you enter the trailhead, you descend slightly downhill and away from the bustle of Patriot Place. The trail is a loop consisting partly of a boardwalk over wetlands, an active cranberry bog, and a wooded area. You will catch a glimpse of several birds here including ducks. The bog is usually harvested in the fall. This is a great little walk if you are in the area shopping, dining, or looking for some pre-game activities. (Go Patriots!!)
