Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary
Ipswich River offers more than 12 miles of interconnecting trails that invite you to explore the forests, meadows, and wetlands. Canoe along the Ipswich River, which meanders through the sanctuary; climb the drumlin and esker, landscape features created by a glacier 15,000 years ago, and explore the narrow passages and caves of the “rockery” constructed in 1905.
