I read that the boardwalk can be difficult if the water level is high so plan your hike accordingly.
In addition to the Ponkapoag Bog Trail, you can hike a scenic 4.2 mile hike around the Ponkapoag pond.
After researching the best way to access the trail, I found that parking at the Ponkapoag Golf Course on Washington Street in Canton, at the intersection with Turnpike Street, provided the best access. There is a map of Blue Hill Reservation at the entrance to Maple Avenue, a tree lined paved path that goes through the heart of the golf course. We took the path to the end and turned left, following the dirt path through the golf course. Ponkapoag Pond will be on the right. There will be a path that intersects in the woods. Take the path to the bog boardwalk entrance, you will find a sign and a marker indicating it is the Ponkapoag Bog Trail.
