Trails at Lake Wampanoag
Explore 1 mile of trails at Lake Wampanoag Wildlife Sanctuary. Along the way you will walk through a spruce/pine forest, pass through a meadow where tree swallows may be nesting, and stop by a small pond. Trails can be classified as easy to moderate. There are some short slopes and portions of the trail have uneven footing. Trails may have wet areas after spring thaw or heavy rains.
This sanctuary uses a blue/yellow trail marking system. Blue circle trail markers lead away from the parking lot. Yellow circle trail markers lead back to the parking lot.
As you walk along the mowed paths during summer and fall, look for bobolinks and a great diversity of dragonflies and butterflies.
Pass by farm ponds, seasonal wetlands and through a locally uncommon spruce fir forest. Look for moose droppings, bark peeled from young maples or browsed balsam fir.
