Hilltop Bog is the headwaters for one of the small streams which feeds into the Patuxent River. The water from this bog flows in generally south. The plant community is a variant of the Coastal Plain/Piedmont Acidic Seepage Swamp :CEGL006238. The full extent of the bog has not yet been fully surveyed.  I will be back here again.
