Explore 1 mile of trails at Lake Wampanoag Wildlife Sanctuary. Along the way you will walk through a spruce/pine forest, pass through a meadow where tree swallows may be nesting, and stop by a small pond. Look for dragonflies and butterflies along the Meadow Trail in summer and fall. http://www.massaudubon.org/get-outdoors/wildlife-sanctuaries/lake-wampanoag/about/trails

It was beautiful...Saw some beavers splashing around, tons of butterflies and birds...Definitely dress appropriately due to ticks and wear your bug spray!

Quick trails with no one else around! Lots of ticks this time around. Trail could use some maintenance for large downed trees and trail markers.

An easy loop hike that starts through a meadow and loops through the forrest. Very lightly used, you are likely to be alone on the trail.
