About Road’s End

Mass Audubon Road's End Wildlife Sanctuary in winter © Richard Johnson

Once a farmstead that was selectively lumbered and cleared for agricultural purposes, Road's End proves that the land can return to its natural state if given the chance. A white pine forest now stands in an old field and pastures have become beaver meadows.

Two gentle loop trails through the fields, forests, and along a brook quickly transport to you the "middle of nowhere."

Sanctuary Highlights

  • The old cellar hole in the field serves as a breeding pond for Wood Frogs and Spotted Salamanders.
  • Bear claw marks can be seen on the American beech trees.
  • Rock walls, pine woodlands, beaver ponds, and a previously harvested forest provide clues to past land use and nature's recovery.
