Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary

Waterfall at Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary in summer

Known for its extensive boardwalk system that goes through forest, fields, and wetlands, Stony Brook offers up-close views of wildlife above and under the water. Located adjacent to the 140-acre Bristol Blake State Reservation and cooperatively managed with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), this former 18th-century mill site now supports native wildlife. Please leave dogs and other pets at home.
