Acquired by the state in 1999, Nasketucket Bay State Reservation in Mattapoisett offers 209 acres of wooded trails, open field and rocky shoreline for the public to enjoy.
The reservation is somewhat short. The traffic was light, however most everyone we saw on the trails had dogs. There was snow on the ground and the shoreline was frozen which was perfect for some great winter shots! Not a trail I would frequent often but still a nice easy walk.
There's a few nice level trails, one goes through a meadow and my favorite leads to the bay. It's about a mile from the lot to the bay. The dog and kids like to go into the water but it's a bit of a rocky shore. I intend to go clam digging there one of these days if I can find a sandier bit of shore. Most of the dog owners are responsible but there are a few, like in most places that just don't care if you're 2 year old might step in their dog's crap.

A nice, very quiet spot for walking/light hiking.
