Cedar Bog Grove
Cedar Bog on a frosty day
Cedar Bog Grove is a group of about 40 old-growth Douglas fir and red cedar trees scattered around a cedar bog southeast of Granite Bay. To get there, turn right off Granite Bay Road onto the logging road (Two Mile Lake Road) at the main intersection in downtown Granite Bay (see map below). Drive past the Newton Lake Trail parking lot until you get to a steep hill (about 1.1 k from Granite Bay Road). Park out of the way of traffic near the bottom of the hill. Follow the logging road, which passes Two Mile Lake, on foot. About half a kilometre past the lake is an unmarked trail going south. If you pass a beaver pond on its north end, you have gone a little too far. The trail into Floating Islands Lake leads to the lake's east end. From there, it's a 0.6-kilometre bushwhack to the grove. Skirt around Cedar Bog on its north side. The grove begins near the east end of the bog. Cedar Bog and the grove are all (just) inside Main Lake Provincial Park.
