North Hill Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary

View of the pond at North Hill Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary

North Hill Marsh can best be described as a sanctuary within a refuge. Situated within Duxbury’s Eastern Greenbelt, 1,000 acres of contiguous open space, the sanctuary’s oak and pine woodlands, wetlands, and 90-acre pond provide habitat for wildlife, especially migratory waterfowl. A clearly marked trail system circles the pond and travels through Duxbury Town Forest. 

Location: Mayflower Street, Duxbury, MA
Hours: Trails open daily, dawn to dusk
