Bells Neck Road Conservation Area - Herring River Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This easy jaunt explores a conservation area bordering Harwich’s Herring River. Along the way, you’ll enjoy an overview of a vast cattail marsh and a look at a fish ladder designed to help migrating alewives reach their spawning grounds in West Reservoir. The route passes near some cranberry bogs, which are fun to visit except during midsummer, when black flies are rampant.

Walk south from the parking area on Bells Neck Road, a wide dirt road on a narrow isthmus separating East and West reservoirs. This area is part of the Harwich Conservation Lands and is protected from development. West Reservoir, a floodedswamp, is a popular canoe and kayak put-in."
