Trails at Cedar Pond
Explore 3 miles of trails at Cedar Pond Wildlife Sanctuary, including an accessible trail.
Woodland Loop (0.9 miles)
Starting from the parking lot, this universally accessible All Persons Trail offers a loop through deciduous and pine forest. At the midpoint on the loop, the trail opens up to a small meadow. By the end of autumn 2023, elements will be installed for low/no vision visitors to self-guide along the entire trail.
Higginson Way (0.2 miles)
Take this connector trail along an old roadbed from the meadow adjacent to the parking lot to the Cedar Pond Loop.
Meadow Pond Trail (0.3 miles)
Connecting the grassy meadow along the All Persons Trail to the Cedar Pond Loop, the Meadow Pond Trail passes close to kettle ponds on both sides of the trail and over a stream that flows south and eventually under Cedar Street to nearby Wenham Lake.
Cedar Pond Loop (1 mile)
Enjoy the beautiful views of the pond on this loop overlooking Cedar Pond with views of Atlantic white cedars, eskers, and kettle ponds along the way. In the southeastern corner of the property, cross the stone bridge, which traverses a filled-in drainage outlet that used to flow into nearby Wenham Lake, which may be visible through the foliage.
