Trails at Mass Audubon
Updated June 25, 2020
While our sanctuaries closed in late March to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we are now happy to share that, after careful analysis and discussions with local officials, we can safely open trails on many of our wildlife sanctuaries for local visitation. We will continue to open more sanctuaries as soon as we are able to safely do so. Please continue to check back for the latest information.
Please Note: all buildings and facilities are closed (including restrooms and water fountains), all visitors should follow trail safety guidelines, dogs and bikes are not permitted, and please carry out anything you bring in.

For visitor and staff safety, we are limiting the number of people on the trails at any given time. We are testing out an Entry & Parking Ticket Reservation system for the following sanctuaries:
- Ipswich River
- Drumlin Farm (weekends only)
- Blue Hills Trailside Museum (weekends only)

At this time, these sanctuaries and trails remain closed to the public. We hope to open these sanctuaries and trails as soon as possible. We continue to seek community feedback and input from local boards of health, and evaluate site-specific trail conditions, our ability to monitor the sanctuary, and parking capacity.
