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.

Very pretty, family friendly, loved this hike. Has trails that are easy to moderate. Definitely worth a visit.
