Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary
|Follow Broadmoor on Facebook|
Broadmoor’s nine miles of walking
trails guide you through a variety
of field, woodland, and wetland
habitats. A quarter-mile, universally accessible
trail and boardwalk
along the bank of Indian Brook
and over the marsh offers great
opportunities for birdwatching,
photography, and sketching. To
enjoy this site in the winter, bring
your snowshoes or cross-country skis. Stroll along the edge
of Indian Brook, which flows into
the Charles River at the sanctuary,
and look for wood ducks and
signs of beavers and otters from
the 110-foot-long bridge. Take
a tape-recorded tour of the
sanctuary’s nature center, which is
complete with solar heating and
composting toilets, to learn about our
