Don’t be fooled by the start of this trail under the power lines. Once you pass the trailhead, this loop explores a small nook of the Bass River and allows you to observe blue herons, search for tree swallows, or watch marsh hawks. The banks of the Bass River were once home to the Pawkannawkut Indians, a tribe that was part of the Wampanoag Nation, which held sovereignty over the vast area from Cape Cod north to Massachusetts Bay. The Pawkannawkut camped and hunted along the river shores until a smallpox epidemic wiped out the tribe in the 1770s.
