Assabet River

Assabet River Professional Review and Guide

"This slow-flowing section of the Assabet River flows through an extensive marshland with inlets, islands, and multiple channels to explore. Look for typical wetland species, especially great blue heron; we saw many fishing here, along with lots of other wetland birds.

While you're here, you can bike or hike the former Boston and Maine Railroad railway bed. The Assabet River Rail Trail hopes to acquire the remaining sections to complete the 12-mile Acton to Marlborough trail."
