Cherry Lake Sedge Meadow contains a southern sedge meadow, as well as northern wet forest, tamarack bog and surrounding uplands. A parking area for the encompassing Honey Creek Wildlife Area is located on CTH W midway between Waterford and Burlington.
I started off from the parking area by following one of several foot-trails that wander through the uplands around several glacial depressions in the area. Sans GPS, I spent a good amount of time trying to find the sedge meadow. By the time, I finally did, I only had time for a quick jaunt into it before heading back. It is also one site from which I don’t have any striking memories. As you can imagine, this is a must-revisit site. I approached from the east side, while the more interesting portions are found to the north and northeast. Now with more time and a better idea of what to expect, I will be more prepared for deeper exploration.
