It was cool to see all the bunkers but the bugs were literally out of control. I would recommend going when some bugs have died for the season...

Walking

There's much more than 3.7 miles of trails here (I regularly do 4.5-8 mile loops here) AND you can connect with other nearby trail systems. Great place for short or long easy hikes/walks, bird watching, bike rides, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, hunting, fishing, and looking for tracks. Most trails are either flat dirt trails, partially paved old roads, or you can just walk the sidewalk if you have strollers or unsteady-when-standing individuals with you. ARNWR was once a part of Fort Devens/Maynard ordinance depot and the historic ammo bunkers are still standing. The visitor center is open from 10a-4pm on weekends and is a great place to check out (especially with kids)! Fair warnings: This is a great find for locals & new hikers/outdoor enthusiasts BUT if you're looking for a physical challenge, you won't find it here. The refuge boasts a large wetland and while this is ideal for wildlife viewing, during the summer it can get VERY buggy on the trails. Dogs are not allowed on the refuge.

We loved this, great visitor center (where we starred)!beautiful lake, interesting military structures, we extended our walk and went to the river and loved what we saw- the rail trail, pretty bridge over the river and some side marshes. The last half of the walk was nondescript but wrapped up a great 3 hour walk

Hiking

To be honest trails are flat and fairly boring . The main trail is paved . I think would be a better biking trail than hiking trail . Several old ammo bunkers on trails . Putter Pond is nice but mainly uninteresting.

Road biking

The loop is one of the most unique trails I've hiked. There are 7 or 8 massive concrete bunkers along the trail giving it an interesting historical element. There is a little side trail that takes you to a beautiful lake as well. The hiking is very easy and good for all levels of experience. Definitely add this to the to-do list.
