A beautiful nature reserve with well marked trails and many water bodies populated with fowl. A great place for birdwatching and hiking.

Broadmoor is a lot more than a loop trail - it is multiple easy paths through differing terrain including across several boardwalks over the large moor itself. It's an Audubon property which means a delight in the morning. Sometimes I just sit at the entrance and watch the swallows at work. If you can get there during the week when it's quieter it is really heavenly. The drive in from Wellesly through parts of old Natick is also very pretty. Sign up for Audubon while you're there! If a place is good for the birds it's good for everyone.

Gorgeous! No dogs allowed. Great place for bird watching with woods, fields, a river, and two ponds.

I have been walking this trail since 1972 and it never fails. We can learn much from the natural history and the human history of this sanctuary. Use it quietly. Great for a midweek ramble at any time of year.

Nice place for bird and nature photography that's within short driving distance. As a member of the Mass Audubon it is one of the top five to visit.

Very pretty, scenic trails. Lots of wildlife to see. Great place for kids since everything is so well-marked and set. $5/person. A little too man-made for my hiking liking.

Great walking trail. I enjoyed this place very much. Remember to bring cash or CC its $5.00 each person. Worth it.

Beautifully kept trails & bridges. The whole family extremely enjoyed hiking and searching for wildlife. The waterfalls were an added beauty too. We were only able to complete some of the trails today, but we will be back often to enjoy the rest of the trails- we bought a yearly membership which I advise since its a great deal and gets you into dozens of other reservations!
