This easy, enjoyable ramble takes you through a redmapleand-tupelo swamp, plus adjacent uplands, where plant enthusiasts will enjoy identifying native species and bird-watchers can hone their “birding by ear” skills. Boldface numbers in the description below refer to numbered markers, most spaced approximately 100 feet apart along the trail, which are keyed to text in Visitor’s Trail Guide to Squam Swamp, a pamphlet published by the Nantucket Conservation Foundation. There is a box for these brochures at the trailhead; please consider recycling the brochure by returning it to the box after your walk.
