Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary

Wooded trail in late autumn at Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary

An expansive retreat along Indian Brook and the Charles River, Broadmoor is an ever-changing environment teeming with wildlife: dragonflies darting, turtles basking, otters leaving tracks in the mud or snow, and more than 150 species of birds. Easy-to-moderate well-groomed trails lead you through the shade of mature woodlands into open fields and along the edges of streams, ponds, and marshland.

Earlier this month, the intrepid trail team at Broadmoor completed a reroute and reopened the much loved Hemlock Trail. This beautiful trail winds through oak-pine woods down to a stream bordered by hemlocks, flowing into the Wildlife Pond.
