Overview

Thread your way through woodlands and cross open fields that descend to one of the state's loveliest tidal rivers. Watch for great blue herons and other waders in the shallows, and northern harriers overhead.

At least 3 miles of trails in the reservation but you can connect to the Dartmoor farm wildlife management area if you want more. A nice mix of trails in the woods and mowed grass trails out in the open with great views of Slowcum's...More

The trails are flat and easy, weaving through some open farm fields and more wooded areas. There are not many spots to get to the river itself, however. Some lovely spots, though.

Lovely place to take a hike, walk right along the river, nice paths and some artwork here and there to enjoy as well. Just be careful of ticks we came home with quite a few on us.

Lovely location, short interesting trails to and above Slocum River. A couple years ago, the DNRT hosted an amazing collection of outdoor scuptures which were beautifully sited and varied. Really, really interesting..

I could spend so much time here. It's fun to walk alone or with friends or family. My dog loves the trails and I love the views.

Farmland with an ocean salty breeze, quite unique. Large cut trails, not blazed, but easy to loop around. Fine spot to get outdoors for a bit, hear some chirping birds, take in some views and relax.

Slocum's River Reserve is a lovely spot for hiking with folks of all ages. Dogs are welcome too. Stretch your legs, enjoy some gorgeous Dartmouth coastline. There are often art installations throughout the reserve, making it a varied and always enjoyable spot.

Take an easy stroll through the medows and wooded areas and you will walk up to and past Slocum's River. Pack a lunch, bring a camera and binoculars. You never know what you may see.
