Darlingtonias are a type of pitcher plant that trap insects and use enzymes to digest them. A very short trail leads to a fen where the bizarre plants crowd together to form a dense death zone for any unwary insects. It such a strange sight to see so many of these large, weird plants – stop if you’re anywhere close!
The trail starts as a paved path, becomes boardwalk through the fen, and completes the loop with paved path. The path does not fit flush with the boardwalk but has a steep hump at either end. Most wheelchair users will find accessing the boardwalk very difficult without assistance.
