Ashumet Holly Wildlife Sanctuary (Mass Audubon) - Grassy Pond Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This easy jaunt around Grassy Pond has something for everyone. Plant enthusiasts will enjoy the fine collection of native and nonnative trees and shrubs, the variety of forest, meadow, and wetland wildflowers, some quite rare, and, of course, the magnificent holly trees, which give this Massachusetts Audubon Society sanctuary its name.
Birders will enjoy watching the aerial antics of a barn swallow colony housed in an old barn near the trailhead. The gentle nature of the well-maintained trails, termed “accessible by wheelchair” in a sanctuary pamphlet, will appeal to families with children. Some of the trail junctions have numbered markers, and all trails are well signed."
