Cranberry Glades Botanical Area

Monongahela National Forest, Hillsboro, West Virginia 26261 USA

“A unique and exotic ecosystem”

The Cranberry Glades is the largest area of bogs, or acidic wetlands, in West Virginia, a unique and exotic ecosystem on 750 acres. This spectacular and beautiful area was established by the United States Forest Service in 1965, to protect and preserve over 60 unique plant species, many of them descended from seeds that took root here over 10,000 years ago. The Glade’s fascinating sphagnum bogs are similar to that found in “Muskegs” of the Artic Tundra. Carnivorous or insect-eating plants also make their home in the bogs.
