With nearly 60 acres of conservation land, there are loads of easy walking trails for all age and abilities. Come see the bird houses set out during migrations, the llamas doing weed control, or the turtles burrowing in by season. Perfect for walking dogs on...More

Spend a few hours wandering the property. Lots of wild life. Saw 2 garter snakes yesterday. Heard woodpeckers and other birds. Saw turtles warming themselves on logs and the eyes of frogs poking above the water.

Wonderful place to walk in the woods on ambiguously marked trails. Delightful. Easy walking and you can choose to take longer or shorter trails. I walk with a cane and can't go far, and it has trails that are perfect for me.

I love Trip Advisor, but sometimes their search function is frustrating & useless! What I'm REALLY trying to review is Mass Audubon's wildlife sanctuaries (in particular the one on Sampsons/Dead Neck Island in Osterville/Cotuit). But TA's system simply won't permit it.
