The Cranberry Peatlands Interpretive Trail is located at the west end of Whitmore Road in Alberton, about 12 km west of Fort Frances. While the boardwalk is currently only partly complete, this little gem of a trail provides a unique natural experience and educational opportunity to all. The self-directed tour features a boardwalk complete with viewing pavilions and informational signage on the myriad flora and fauna which exist within the bog, which houses some provincially significant species. The project is spearheaded by cooperative efforts of the Rainy River Field Naturalists and the Rainy Lake Conservancy together with other volunteers.
