Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary/Bristol Blake State Reservation Trail

Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary/Bristol Blake State Reservation Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Kids love water, and this hike offers plenty. The former site of a sawmill, Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary’s wheelchair-accessible Pond Loop Trail circles Stony Brook Pond, has an extensive boardwalk between Kingfisher Pond and Teal Marsh, and ends near a waterfall. Wildlife is plentiful and children are practically guaranteed to spot something. Ducks, geese, turtles, muskrats, great blue herons, and many other types of birds and animals are common.

There is even a butterfly garden at the end of the hike, where you may be able to spot different types of butterflies and caterpillars feeding on the nectar of the garden’s plants. Before setting out, head to the nature center—you can check the board for the day’s wildlife sightings and borrow or purchase a trail guide to the numbered stations along the trail."
