Offering 140 acres in the town of Norfolk, the reservation was once home to a commercial sawmill operation. A large, open field welcomes visitors and an old stone lined cow path leads to Stony Brook Pond and Teal Marsh where turtles and great blue herons are easy to spy. A boardwalk leads over Kingfisher Pond to a stand of beech trees, which is a popular spot for a wide variety of wildlife viewing. It is adjacent to the Massachusetts Audubons 116 acre Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary and is managed collaboratively with them. Admission fee is charged, but is free to Mass. Audubon members and DCR Park pass holders. Picnicking and pets are not allowed.

lots of life in the water that can be seen from the nice walkways above. tons of birds and turtles. great for kids and families.

Beautiful but short and easy. Perfect for easy walking. Bathrooms, audio tour, blind trail, friendly. Helpful staff and a visitor center. Went in the winter so don't know about bugs.

Great hike for young kids!

Short but beautiful. Highly recommend it.
Easy walk and great for bird watching
