This short wide boardwalk with bumper boards on both sides was built by local field naturalist groups and intended for wheelchair access as well as for walkers. It winds through the fen across the road from the Lake Huron shoreline allowing views of lady slippers in spring and a mass of gentians and other wildflowers in fall. Interpretive panels are present.

Access: Access is on Shore Road north of Oliphant.

 Each spring, over 200 species of birds can be observed in the area, as well as orchids and carnivorous plants.
