Forest, marsh, heathland, and sandplain grassland communities all await you on this rewarding route, which also visits the glacial-outwash stream valley holding Fresh Brook. Although summer brings many people to this Massachusetts Audubon Society sanctuary, most opt for Goose Pond and the beach, so you can enjoy solitude by taking the trail less traveled. Opportunities for bird-watching and plant study abound. Visit the newly revamped nature center, which has displays and exhibits, a small gift shop and bookstore, and helpful, knowledgeable staff.

We left early from Boston and got there by 10AM. The place was still empty of people, but teaming with birds and other creatures. Definitely the time to be there.
