nice easy walk with kids through the woods, over a few bridges, and around a small pond. it's very short though. it's good for a one time visit.

nice short walk. not too many views but there is some wildlife to see. I went in mid March so the leaves haven't come back yet you could see the nearby houses through the trees, which spoils it for me a little.

I like the old colonial style stone walls from the old farm land markers.

A hidden gem for birding and also a great place to bring kids for some easy hiking.

I did this one twice. The first time was on a weekday and there were many Moms on a nature hike with their children. The second time was early on a Saturday morning and there weren't many people. A previous reviewer said dogs are not allowed but there were several on the trail the first time I went; some on leash, some off leash. The Audubon Society has a good map, but it is called Attleboro Springs Wildlife Sanctuary at La Salette, OR Oak Knoll Wild Life Sanctuary. The directions on the trail can be a little confusing in conjunction with the map from the Audubon Society.

Beautiful trail during fall. Colors automatically pop! Wish there was more lake tho...water levels are low. There are a lot of roots to be careful of tho.

Great established trails. Could use some more dirt on the oak trail. Too many roots can make you trip

It was a great little hike. The wildlife was fairly abundant today. I witnessed wild turkeys, mallards swimming, and a 3-4 baby turtles. The field before the trail was also full of Easter eggs! There was an Easter Egg hunt going on for little children this morning.

This is a very easy hike suitable for taking small kids. One drawback is that it is the trail is in sight of a number of nearby houses. Even though there is only a single loop trail, nice maps are available. Also, it appears that geocaching is popular here as we spotted two caches amonst the rocks.
