Trail Descriptions

Forest Loop Trail

Take the Forest Loop Trail, pass over a footbridge to cross a quiet stream, then walk through a red maple swamp bordered by fragrant sweet pepperbush, and on to a large rock outcropping of puddingstones. 

Reflection (All Persons) Trail

Along the universally accessible Reflection Trail, there is an observation platform overlooking the vernal pool. 

This 0.5-mile, fully accessible loop follows a wide, level crushed stone path, enhanced with bridges, boardwalks, and an observation deck.

There is a guide rope on the left, occasionally replaced by a handrail, for the entire length of the trail. There is also an audio tour available.

All narrated stops along the trail are marked by a round bead in the guide rope. Within reach of the bead, there will be a signpost with the stop name and number in print and Braille. A square bead in the rope indicates that there is a bench or other seating nearby.

On this trail, you can listen for Scarlet Tanagers and Ovenbirds, wood frogs and bull frogs; visit various wetland and woodland habitats; explore a puddingstone outcrop; and learn about the natural and cultural history of this special place.

Audio Tour

You can download the Audio Tour or call and listen to the audio tour on your cell phone as you enjoy the trail. The phone number is 508-441-3160 (your normal cellphone charges apply). The phone tour has a menu so that you can select the stop you would like to hear about.
